Summary

To be competitive in today's knowledge-driven economy, businesses need to manage an ever increasing range of information sources and technologies, develop analytics capabilities to tap into new sources of "big" data, as well as design processes and platforms that enable them to share this newly gained organisational knowledge among employees. Central to all of this are information systems and knowledge management – the means or processes by which people and organisations, utilising technologies, create or gather, process, store, use and disseminate or share management information and organisational knowledge.

This programme introduces students to the effective development, use and management of these systems, and the information and communication technologies (ICTs) that support them. You will also learn to appreciate their strategic applications, and evaluate the implications of technology trends such as social media, cloud computing, business intelligence, big data storage/analytics, etc. for the nature of work and organisational competitive advantage. The MSc emphasises both practice as well as the theories underpinning it, and integrates technological, managerial and social aspects of the subject.

The programme is both suitable for graduates in a more technology-oriented subject (or those with some experience in the IT sector), as well as for recent graduates in general management fields. It provides a strong foundation for those looking to have careers in knowledge and information systems management, or want to carry out research in the discipline.

Learning and teaching

You will learn through a series of teaching and learning activities and assessment methods designed to advance your theoretical grounding in the discipline as well as your ability to function more effectively in a work environment. For example, during the programme, you will present some of your work in class, work together in teams to produce a business proposal, etc.

Modules

E-Business and Human-Computer Interaction; Information Systems Development; Information Systems Management and Strategy; Introduction to Knowledge and Information Systems Management; Knowledge Management and Business Intelligence; Qualitative and Quantitative Research; Problem Structuring; Systems Thinking; Web Applications; Dissertation; plus 1 or 2 relevant optional modules - choose from: Consultancy Skills, Simulation, Credit Scoring and Data Mining, Project Risk Management, Business Ethics, Innovation and Technology Transfer.

Career opportunities

Career opportunities are often related to knowledge management, the management of the IT function or information systems provision within organisations, or IT/digital/web consultancy. Future career paths may for example include roles such as that of IT manager, project lead, business/process analyst, IT/digital consultant, chief knowledge officer or knowledge manager, etc.
