This one year MSc Cyber Security degree offers a multi-disciplinary approach to this critically important topic, embracing not only the technical subjects, but also aspects of criminology, risk management, law and social sciences giving you skills that are highly regarded by leading employers.

Introducing your degree

Cyber security is a topic of critical importance to commercial and academic organisations, as well as to governments and their citizens. Our Cyber Security programme, primarily aimed as a broadening qualification for computer science graduates, offers a multi-disciplinary perspective to the subject, giving students an excellent basis for a future career in the cyber security field.

Overview

There is currently a worldwide shortage of skilled practitioners in cyber security. In the UK, the National Audit Office recently named "addressing the UK's current and future ICT and cyber security skills gap" as a "key challenge", whilst at a time when cybercrime “as-a-service” is on a steep rise, the Department for Business, Innovation & Skill calls for companies to make of cyber security a Board level responsibility. Our MSc is specifically designed to give students a well-rounded, multi-disciplinary view of the subject area, embracing not only the technical subjects, but also aspects of criminology, risk management, law and social sciences. We believe a broad grounding in cyber security will give our students a key advantage in the marketplace.

With an emphasis on the way organisations share and create knowledge, as well as the effective development, use and management of information systems, this MSc integrates the technical, managerial and social aspects of these subjects. You’ll gain a broad perspective on the way organisations and individuals use digital technologies that will be highly valued by employers.

Introducing your degree

This MSc in Knowledge and Information Systems Management will give you a deeper understanding of the ways in which information and knowledge are generated, used and shared within organisations. The course covers the strategic application of information technologies, including recent trends such as big data and cloud computing, and the development and use of information systems. You’ll also learn about the social and organisational aspects of managing knowledge, which are covered in more depth than on most other similar UK masters courses. Underpinned by our academics’ specialist research, the modules will encourage you to explore key theories through case studies and critical discussion of research papers. You’ll also gain practical analysis, design and consultancy skills that are highly attractive to employers.

Overview

In today’s big data world, businesses are increasingly interested in how they can use technologies to gather, share and analyse the growing range of data sources available to them and generate new knowledge about their customers and business processes. At the same time, web and mobile technologies have transformed the way businesses operate and enable organisations to carve out new business models. There is demand for professionals who understand the strategic applications of these digital technologies and are able to successfully manage the development and use of these systems. 

The MSc in Knowledge and Information Systems Management will equip you with the skills businesses are looking for. It covers the main theories and practice relating to information systems management but, unlike most UK MScs in this area, also has a strong emphasis on contemporary knowledge management. Knowledge management refers to the ways in which organisations generate knowledge, and how this knowledge is used by and shared among employees. It is underpinned by information systems and their supporting technologies but also linked with organisational management processes and human factors. This degree covers all these areas, giving you a more rounded view that will be of significant value to businesses in a range of sectors. 

You’ll learn about current technology trends, such as big data and cloud computing, and how they fit into a broader organisational context – for example how they might benefit organisations and how any barriers to adoption might be overcome. You’ll also gain an understanding of how digital technologies can be an integral part of a technology-driven business model that can enable companies to outsmart their competitors.

This MSc will be of interest if you have a background in technology or engineering and wish to put your learning into a wider management or organisational context, or if your previous education or experience is in general management and you would like to learn more about how organisations build, use and manage information systems.

Career Opportunities

The MSc in Knowledge and Information Systems Management provides a strong foundation for those looking to progress their careers in this field or who want to carry out research in the discipline.

This course will prepare you for a role related to an organisation’s management of knowledge, the management of its IT function or its information systems provision. You could also choose to go into IT, digital or web consultancy. Potential roles include chief knowledge officer or knowledge manager, project lead, business or process analyst, IT or digital consultant, or IT manager. If you are interested in a career in academia, this degree is excellent preparation for further study at PhD level and beyond.
