This course is primarily concerned with preparing graduates to be able to effectively manage and lead the development of major information systems and/or e-Business systems resources. The subjects studied in the programme are based on the large body of up-to-date research and practitioner knowledge and experience of the staff in the School.
The curriculum includes the study of traditional and contemporary approaches to information systems and knowledge management in the business context; PRINCE2 project management; security systems management; business agility / creativity including the management of change, e-Business systems development and deployment, research methods and consultancy skills practice.
On completion of the course students should be able to demonstrate effective communication at a level appropriate to the audience, develop internet search skills, learn independently via a diverse range of resources, exercise initiative and personal responsibility and criticise and evaluate their own learning experiences. In addition, they will have developed sound knowledge and experience of PRINCE2 Project Management, which will be an attractive competency to many organisations.
Applicants should normally have a minimum of a lower second class (2:2) honours degree in a subject in the general areas of Computing/Information Systems, Business Studies with IT or Engineering with a strong Computing/IT content. Alternatively, they will hold an equivalent professional qualification and/or suitable in-depth experience of working in areas which involve a significant amount of subject knowledge that would have been covered by the traditional professional qualifications and preparation discussed above. For students whose first language is not English evidence of having reached the equivalent of IELTS 6.5 TOEFL (575 paper-based, 90 internet-based), is required before entry.
