It is suitable for graduates from a whole range of business, engineering and science backgrounds as well as those with a qualification in IT.

What the course will provide

This degree will equip you with the techniques to manage the strategic development of e-business based organisations and appropriate e-business technologies. You’ll develop the skills and knowledge to evaluate, manage, and improve the operational functions of an organisation and to apply the concepts of systems integration to the design and development of products and services through market analysis.

The programme focuses not only on online businesses, but also very much on the online activities and communications across more traditional organisations. Online engagement is a defining feature of today’s business environment, and as such is an essential element for most businesses, governments, and institutions.
