The market-leading Information Technology, Management and Organisational Change (ITMOC) MSc gives you an unrivalled platform for managing the strategic impact, organisational implications and business value of information technology in a globalising IT sector.


Aims and philosophy

Three fundamental values inform and underpin how the ITMOC programme is designed and delivered:

  • Being critical and reflective – you’ll be actively challenged to question and debate the material presented, drawing on your own experience and weighing your views against latest research findings. You will be taught by more than 20 research-active faculty members.
  • Being pragmatic – we look at theory and practice side by side, and ensure that the theories you’ll encounter are not abstract generalisations, but ones which provide rich and meaningful insights into what is currently happening in the real world. Our unique guest/external speaker seminars and workshops put you at the forefront of the latest practice.
  • Being student-centred and supportive – we recognise the importance of individual learning styles, and both what we teach and how we teach is designed to help you learn independently, in whatever way best suits you. Fortnightly Director’s sessions, working in groups and comprehensive student support systems mean that you are part of a community that supports your learning.

                        English Language Requirements

                        You only need to take one of these language tests:

                        • Minimum required score:


                          The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.

                        • Minimum required score (Grade B):


                          The CAE test – or the Cambridge Advanced English – is an exam for applicants who wish to get a Certificate in Advanced English. To receive the Advanced certificate, test-takers must score between 142 and 210 on the Cambridge English: Advanced test. Read more about CAE.

                          Note: degree programmes and applications may require a more specific minimum score for admission.

                        • Minimum required score:


                          The TOEFL – or Test Of English as a Foreign Language – offers an internet-based test (iBT).

                        Academic Requirements

                        You need the following GPA score:

                        Required score: Upper Second Class

                        Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to Upper Second Class on the UK Honour scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on the UK Honour scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).

                        Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).

                        Entry Requirements

                        Entry to the ITMOC programme is highly competitive. To be considered for admission you will need to have a good honours degree (a minimum of 2:1) or the equivalent grade point average (a GPA of at least 3.2) from a recognised university. We also accept an equivalent professional qualification.
