MSc Information Systems and Business Analysis is a unique and stimulating course that equips you with skills that are in huge demand in the job market. You'll gain a detailed understanding of information systems and how they empower business operations, and develop highly desirable technical skills in building and maintaining ICT systems and project management.

This course is recognised as a leading information systems masters programme and is ranked 18th in Europe and 3rd in the UK by Eduniversal Best Masters Ranking 2018. It has been developed in collaboration with our industry partners, to ensure we’re providing you with the specialist skills needed for business analysis and information systems roles, which in turn will enhance your employability.

What sets this course apart from other masters programmes is its focus on developing practical skills which are in high demand in the job market. The vast majority of modules are very hands-on and involve applied learning activities. For example, with our Developing Business Systems Workshop, you’ll have the chance to gain first-hand experience of planning and implementing a consultancy project from start to finish. What makes this truly unique is that we actively monitor your progress and vary the tasks and their complexity to ensure you get the most out of the experience.

You’ll learn the various tools and approaches used to analyse business and system requirements, which will give you the skills and know-how to develop ICT systems to meet the needs of businesses. You’ll also learn key project management processes and techniques. This will provide you with a theoretical background as well as practical experience, so you’re confident and capable of planning, monitoring and evaluating major commercial projects.

We use a variety of teaching methods to enable you to get the most from the course. There are inspiring lectures and seminars as well as many teaching sessions which include practical activities. We use a mix of workshops, simulation exercises and reflective case studies. All sessions consist of small groups of between 20 to 30 students, meaning there’s plenty of support available for you.
