Operate and manage effectively in the e-business environment
This degree equips students with the skills to enable them to operate effectively in the e-business environment and to manage or lead either the transformation of existing business processes or creation of new e-business activity; the programme is suitable for graduates from information technology, engineering or science backgrounds and also management students with a keen interest in technology and how it can be used effectively to promote competitiveness.
The course provides the techniques to manage the strategic development of e-business based organisations and appropriate enabling e-business technologies. Students learn how to evaluate, manage and improve the operational functions of an organisation and apply the concepts of systems integration to the design and development of products and services through market analysis.
After You Graduate
Graduates can be expected to go on to work in information technology and software related companies or enterprises with existing or developing online e-business initiatives, particularly, but not exclusively, those in the engineering and/or manufacturing sector. Many recent graduates have gone into e-business consultancy roles and positions such as Business Information Manager (HP), Quality Assurance Lead (IBM), Global Application Specialist (Mars) Business Amalyst (PWC) Consultant (SAP China) Audit Assistant (KPMG).

The course is modular - each student takes a combination of core and elective modules. 10 modules are studied and assessed in total. Modules consist of nominally 40 hours directed tuition in the form of lectures, seminars, group work, presentations, case studies and e-learning. This is covered in a full-immersion, intensive week.
The taught modules account for 50% of the Master's degree. A major individual research project, submitted in the form of a dissertation accounts for the other 50%.
Between 7 and 9 core modules are specified for each of the MSc courses and these modules are compulsory. The core modules for each course are listed on the relevant course pages.
In addition to the core modules you can choose additional elective modules from an extensive list to make up to 10 modules for the course. There are a range of elective modules available, focussed on management, business, technology and other subject areas. And so you can choose your elective modules to tailor the degree to your interest and to support your future career aspirations.
The course is assessed through Post Module Assignments and a major research project.
Post Module Assignments (PMA)
At the end of every module you will be given a post module assignment (PMA). This is a piece of assessed, written work which enables you to delve more deeply into the subject area of the module. It should take you 40-60 hours to complete and the submission deadline is four weeks after the end of the module.
Project and Dissertation
Throughout the year, alongside your modules and PMA’s, you will undertake a major individual research project which you then submit in the form of a dissertation at the end of August, followed by an oral exam where your Project Supervisor and an independent supervisor will discuss your project with you.
You do not need to choose your project in advance. At the beginning of your MSc course, you will be provided with a wide range of project titles which you can choose from. Many projects relate closely to research developments in industry or research at WMG.
The project accounts for 50% of MSc grade and through choosing a project suited to your interest and future career aspirations, this another great way to tailor your degree.
WMG work closely with industry to ensure their course content is up to date and that what is being taught to students and the teaching methods used are relevant to today’s industry needs. Our courses are taught by academic staff with backgrounds in industry who are supported by visiting lecturers currently working in senior positions in industry. You will also have regular opportunities to go out on day trips to industry, visiting the sites of well-known companies to experience in practice the theory of what you learning and see how it is applied in industry.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
No work experience is required.
Fortunately enough I was able to find StudyPortals. Right from the start of the application to getting the confirmation of admission I was using StudyPortals.
