With an emphasis on the way organisations share and create knowledge, as well as the effective development, use and management of information systems, this MSc integrates the technical, managerial and social aspects of these subjects. You’ll gain a broad perspective on the way organisations and individuals use digital technologies that will be highly valued by employers.

Introducing your degree

This MSc in Knowledge and Information Systems Management will give you a deeper understanding of the ways in which information and knowledge are generated, used and shared within organisations. The course covers the strategic application of information technologies, including recent trends such as big data and cloud computing, and the development and use of information systems. You’ll also learn about the social and organisational aspects of managing knowledge, which are covered in more depth than on most other similar UK masters courses. Underpinned by our academics’ specialist research, the modules will encourage you to explore key theories through case studies and critical discussion of research papers. You’ll also gain practical analysis, design and consultancy skills that are highly attractive to employers.

Overview

In today’s big data world, businesses are increasingly interested in how they can use technologies to gather, share and analyse the growing range of data sources available to them and generate new knowledge about their customers and business processes. At the same time, web and mobile technologies have transformed the way businesses operate and enable organisations to carve out new business models. There is demand for professionals who understand the strategic applications of these digital technologies and are able to successfully manage the development and use of these systems. 

The MSc in Knowledge and Information Systems Management will equip you with the skills businesses are looking for. It covers the main theories and practice relating to information systems management but, unlike most UK MScs in this area, also has a strong emphasis on contemporary knowledge management. Knowledge management refers to the ways in which organisations generate knowledge, and how this knowledge is used by and shared among employees. It is underpinned by information systems and their supporting technologies but also linked with organisational management processes and human factors. This degree covers all these areas, giving you a more rounded view that will be of significant value to businesses in a range of sectors. 

You’ll learn about current technology trends, such as big data and cloud computing, and how they fit into a broader organisational context – for example how they might benefit organisations and how any barriers to adoption might be overcome. You’ll also gain an understanding of how digital technologies can be an integral part of a technology-driven business model that can enable companies to outsmart their competitors.

This MSc will be of interest if you have a background in technology or engineering and wish to put your learning into a wider management or organisational context, or if your previous education or experience is in general management and you would like to learn more about how organisations build, use and manage information systems.

Career Opportunities

The MSc in Knowledge and Information Systems Management provides a strong foundation for those looking to progress their careers in this field or who want to carry out research in the discipline.

This course will prepare you for a role related to an organisation’s management of knowledge, the management of its IT function or its information systems provision. You could also choose to go into IT, digital or web consultancy. Potential roles include chief knowledge officer or knowledge manager, project lead, business or process analyst, IT or digital consultant, or IT manager. If you are interested in a career in academia, this degree is excellent preparation for further study at PhD level and beyond.

Our alumni have gone on to work for organisations including: 

  • Citi
  • Daimler AG

Information Systems (IS) as a discipline is a combination of IT systems, business analysis, organisational and management theory, psychology and sociology that have found their home in IS. This is largely because these diverse areas are required now in increasingly complex organisational environments.

An organisation’s critical work systems are linked to the Information Systems that supports them. In the context of this course we assume the term ‘information system’ involves computer technology. However, the course places more emphasis on the human and organisational aspects of IS than on the computer systems that may form part of them.

This course has been developed to deliver the higher level, essential skills and knowledge needed to succeed in a role managing large-scale information systems. It will encourages you to reflect on the bigger picture of information systems management by taking a wider perspective on the strategic challenges that occur.

The course will enable you to develop the skills and expertise required to become an innovative problem solver who can bridge the gap between those focused on IT and those focused on business.

If you do not have previous training in IT, the course includes preparatory units that will give you the IT knowledge needed for the remainder of the course. However, if you already have a degree in IT, you can accelerate your study with an exemption from these preparatory units, or perhaps study further elective units in areas of your choice.

The course gives you an opportunity to explore a wide range of areas, from enterprise systems, information systems design, and business intelligence to IT strategy and project management.

If your interests lie in information and knowledge management, you can pursue a specialisation in Archives and Recordkeeping or Librarianship and Information Science, accredited by professional organisations.

In your final semester, you may take part in an Industry Experience program, working in a small team with industry mentors to develop entrepreneurial IT solutions. Or you may undertake a minor-thesis research project, investigating cutting-edge problems in BIS under the supervision of internationally recognised researchers.

High-achieving students who complete the research component may progress to further research study.

The MBIS is accredited with the Australian Computer Society (ACS).

Career opportunities

The highly flexible course structure opens up a variety of career opportunities. Graduates of the program will be expected to play leading professional roles in the field locally and overseas.

Please select a specialisation for more details:

Archives and recordkeeping

Records managers and archivists ensure that vital records of social and organisational activity are created, managed and made available to business for accountability, corporate memory, enterprise knowledge and cultural purposes. Work settings include most major private and public sector organisations, and archival institutions. Knowledge managers are concerned with developing strategies and processes for managing organisational knowledge and knowledge flows to achieve organisational goals, enhance performance and add value. A particular concern is developing an environment conducive to the creation, sharing and application of organisational knowledge, and systems that support these processes.

Business information systems studies

The general form of the course gives students the skills and knowledge to solve organisational information problems. The course caters for students who would like to be business analysts, information systems consultants and IT managers. Students will learn about information technology principles, systems analysis and design, enterprise architecture and systems, IT management and governance and project management. Students can select from a range of business information systems units to focus their studies in several areas of interest including business intelligence, user experience design and business process modelling.

Library and information science

Librarians and information specialists manage information and provide information services to clients in a wide range of contexts. They are concerned with analysing information needs, solving information problems, evaluating information sources, organising information, synthesising information into targeted information products, and training clients in the use of information products, services and systems. They work for commercial, government and community sector organisations, for information consultancies and as independent information brokers.

Course Structure

The course is structured in three parts, A, B and C. All students complete Part B (core studies). Depending upon prior qualifications, you may receive credit for Part A (foundation studies) or Part C (advanced studies) or a combination of the two.

Note that if you are eligible for credit for prior studies you may elect not to receive the credit.

PART A. Foundations for advanced business information systems
These units provide an introduction to information systems and business concepts, including system design and analysis as applied in professional practice. You will learn basic software programming and development concepts and database technology.

These units are intended for students whose previous qualification is not in a cognate field.

PART B. Core Master's study
These studies draw on best practices within business information systems to gain critical understanding of the theories and practice relating to information systems and business process design, IT strategy, IT governance, IT management and related issues. Your study will focus on project management as well as a choice of several areas of enterprise IT and information management practice.

PART C. Advanced practice
The focus of these studies is professional or scholarly work in the broad realm of business information systems.

You have two options.

The first is a minor thesis research program, consisting of a research project and a research methods training unit. Students wishing to use this Masters course as a pathway to a higher degree by research should take this first option.

The second option is a program of coursework involving advanced study and an Industry experience studio project.

Students completing the combined specialisation Archives and Recordkeeping/Library and Information Science complete the industry experience program.

Students admitted to the course, who have a recognised honours degree in a discipline cognate to information systems, will receive credit for Part C, however, should they wish to complete a research project as part of the course they should consult with the course coordinator.

The emergence of social media, wireless communications, the cloud, big data and mobile technologies are all creating challenges for managers and organisations. Alongside accelerating information flows, complexity and volume, the skills to manage and drive opportunity through this information are now vital for most organisations.

The skills to meet this need are scarce, particularly amongst managers. As a result, many organisations struggle with this area of business and demand for professionals with these skills is strong as a result. This course is designed to meet the expectations of both leading organisations and individuals who wish to pursue a career in information systems and information management.
