About the course
IT and information systems drive and control organisations. This course gives you a grounding in management practices and develops your skills so you can play a key role in the design, implementation and development of information systems.
You can apply to base your dissertation on a project which you would work on with an external organisation. Recent projects include working with a national company to develop a prescriptive method for qualifying risks and quantifying the value added by advanced service systems for process packaging equipment.
Our graduates work for companies such as Adidas, ASDA, Boots, ExxonMobil, HSBC, Morgan Stanley, Pepsico International, Sainsbury’s and Vodafone. Their job titles include Head of Business Enhancement, Management Consultant, Product Marketing Manager, Web Marketing Consultant and Campaign Manager.
An MBA can help you change direction or progress faster within your organisation. A specialist MSc can take you into a particular field of management such as human resources, finance or marketing. You might be inspired to set up a company of your own.
