This Masters programme will expose students to the leading edge tool for assessing and managing IT, the IT-CMF. This is the world’s most comprehensive IT Management framework and has been developed through years of research with leading global companies. This course differs from many other IT programmes because of its leading edge industry inputs and also because it sets IT Management in the context of the business environment. This is not a programme to develop stand-alone technical IT specialists. This course develops the capacity for participants to understand how IT operates both as a function and as a key interrelated resource within an organisational context. This involves understanding people, work processes, relationships, organisation structures, organisation strategies, and how all of these impact on and are impacted by Information Technology.
Information Technology (IT) Management insights are developed through a series of modules exploring how to manage IT and create value from IT using knowledge from the expertise of the Innovation Value Institute. It creates value within a wider context of both the business itself and the wider world, thus we also provide modules on functional and organisational (e.g. finance, HRM, organisation theory, strategy and marketing amongst others) aspects of business. Learning from modules is applied in practice through a business research project/dissertation.
Future career prospects include careers in IT Management, Consultancy, and IT-enabled Business Transformation in a wide range of roles in all types of organizations. The breadth and depth of the programme, plus its in-company research dimension and its integration with the IT-CMF renders the graduate attractive to an array of future employers. As part of the MSc programme, students have the opportunity to take IT-CMF professional training and will have the opportunity to take the examination for the IT-CMF Associate professional qualification, accredited by the Innovation Value Institute.
