Course content

The success of an organisation can rest on both an understanding of IT and how to use innovation strategically to enable new growth and competitive advantage. This course aims to provide an understanding of the characteristics of high-tech innovation combined with the leadership and management values necessary for entrepreneurship (new venture creation) or for successfully creating and managing strategic innovation both from within an organisation as well as from outside, eg as an IT consultant.

Key features

-This course is accredited by BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT.
-You can tailor the course to suit your own career development needs, industry background or organisation's requirements.
-The project/dissertation gives you the chance to study an area of interest in greater depth and gain valuable research skills. It often takes the form of a business plan relevant to your career, and provides an excellent selling point when looking for a job or promotion. If you are an overseas student, we will help you to carry out a project either based in your home country or that will be of specific relevance when you return home.

What will you study?

You will study the types and characteristics of innovation, as well as the major barriers to the spread of innovation. This will enable you to recognise and welcome the increased rate of change and instability in the business and technology fields. You will gain an understanding of the role of information systems in encouraging, capturing and managing innovation in an organisation and how this relates to constructing better value chains by using knowledge management, data mining, decision making and business intelligence.

Work placement scheme

Kingston University has set up a scheme that allows postgraduate students in the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Computing to include a work placement element in their course starting from September 2017. The placement scheme is available for both international and home/EU students.

-The work placement, up to 12 months; is optional.
-The work placement takes place after postgraduate students have successfully completed the taught portion of their degree.
-The responsibility for finding the placement is with the student. We cannot guarantee the placement, just the opportunity to undertake it.
-As the work placement is an assessed part of the course for international students, this is covered by a student's tier 4 visa.

Details on how to apply will be confirmed shortly.
