If you would like to integrate management and IT skills, prepare yourself for new developments in digital business, and equip yourself with knowledge highly relevant to these emerging technologies, this Business Information Technology MSc is ideal. It will enable you to bridge the gap between business and IT practitioners, ensuring you are fully conversant with the language of e-business/e-commerce and possess the transferable skills necessary to enhance your career opportunities.
What will you study?
After an induction programme introducing you to the Business School and the expectations and ethos of the course, you will go on to explore how current technologies are being used to provide more-effective management systems. You will gain an overview of what constitutes business information technology and will develop a detailed knowledge of the technology and issues in order to plan, design and predict new document management applications.
You will also gain a solid foundation in practical web programming and related security issues. In addition, you will look at strategies for the exploitation, management and implementation of Internet and e-commerce applications. There will also be an opportunity to specialise via your elective choice and your dissertation.
The consultancy project will develop your management consultancy skills through a live project, the results of which you and your team will present to a client. The dissertation will enable you to explore in depth a business information technology topic of your choice. Recent topics include customer relationship management (CRM) systems; consumer behaviour towards online shopping; information technology outsourcing; strategic alliances; web services; and business process management.
