The aim of this programme is to provide students with theoretical knowledge, advanced practical skills and experience to enable them to develop such abilities that would make them essential to supporting corporate systems and driving information systems enabled change at senior management level.
Business Information Systems at UEL
The programme provides specialist technological updating and a broadening of the horizons of participants by considering the use of Information Systems in stimulating and harnessing change at corporate environments. It offers the opportunity to expand on existing and gain new valuable knowledge into the use of information systems in a corporate context.
There are opportunities to study the very latest developments from the standpoint of theoretical research or with a view to complex systems construction.
The programme is offered in full-time mode and part-time mode, commencing September or February. The full time mode consists of two 15-week semesters plus a 14-week dissertation project. The part time mode consists of four 15-week semesters plus a 28-week dissertation project. A full time student will study two 30-credit modules per semester whereas a part time student will study one 30-credit module per semester.
For both modes of study the dissertation project may occur during the summer period. It is possible to move from full-time to part-time study and vice-versa to accommodate any external factors such as financial constraints or domestic commitments. However, this may impact on the overall duration of the study period. Students will be required to complete their programme within six years from initial registration.
This programme utilises a mixture of learning methods that focus on and maximises the student learning experience through:
* A series of lectures and seminars that promote student participation
* A number of tutorial and practical sessions that enforce student learning
* A number of problem solving, individual and group, activities that enhance student understanding and skills
* A series of student based activities such as presentations
* A web-based learning system that supports students in various aspects of their studies
To reflect the programme objectives and learning outcomes each taught module is usually assessed through a combination of various assessment techniques. These typically include group and individual work, written reports, examinations, and essays. The project module is assessed in terms of a proposal and the dissertation.
