Information Systems and Operations Management Masters (MSc)

Course Description

Organizations of all sizes and in all sectors are increasingly dependent on computer-based Information Systems to drive day-to-day operations. The intelligent and creative use of IT also enables innovation in both products and services, and can underpin the achievement of competitive advantage.

This course combines the study of Information Systems with Operations Management, emphasising the creative potential of information technology for innovation and change. It provides a thorough grounding in the principles and practice of information systems.

Students will also be educated in the key operations management challenges in contemporary organisations, including the challenges in supply chain management.

The course provides progressive learning towards the frontiers of knowledge in both Information Systems and Operations management. The structure of the programme allows students to focus on advanced developments in the areas that meet their specific interests and career aspirations. In addition to the taught modules, the course requires a major individual project, undertaken over the Summer term. The project integrates knowledge, methods and practical skills, and is often undertaken with an outside organization. It emphasizes leading edge thinking in theory and practice and develops skills in research, project management and report writing.

The course is suitable for you if you want to pursue a career in Information Systems and/or Operations Management, whether or not you have a first degree in a closely related area. We welcome applications from graduates in business and management, engineering, computer science, and social science disciplines such as psychology.
