Interested in a career in management or IT consultancy?
You will develop your management and consulting skills and encourage your critical thinking about wider issues outside narrow technology boundaries. This course is about understanding how to better use technology to enhance business, not learning how to code.
We have close relationships with many IT and consulting organisations including EY, Barclays, SAP, Google, and Deloitte. All these firms value the WBS focus on developing managers with a creative mindset to integrated IT and digital innovations in business. Deloitte also runs a whole module, during which students get insights into the challenges and approaches to client work.
Study six compulsory modules and choose two optional modules over the course of this one year programme. Gain an excellent foundation in management theory and practical use of information systems, and learn to manage digital innovation to achieve business value.
Hands-on experience with industry experts
We use real-life case studies and practitioner input at every opportunity and across all our compulsory and optional modules.
Assessment is mainly based on group coursework, where you will have the opportunity to work closely with your international classmates on real-world cases involving the strategy and management of digital innovation and information systems.
This brings together everything you’ve learned throughout the course. You may undertake this piece of work for a client company which can be an excellent way of gaining a position on graduation. Previous projects have been undertaken with clients such as Yammer, Nielsen, Coventry City Council, Philips, ARM and Cisco.
