Our MSc Information Management and Business Technology programme has been designed with partners from industry to produce graduates who understand the professional, managerial and technical dimensions of information management and business technology.

Information management is a critical success factor affecting almost any organization. In today's digital age, the speedy and accurate sharing of the right information to the right people is essential for success.
