Key Features

This MSc programme is aimed at providing graduates with the knowledge and skills to enable them to satisfy the demands of employers developing and enhancing their use of ICT, particularly in the area of e-Commerce. It aims to enable graduates to improve their employment prospects and enhance their career development.

This programme is involved in areas of established, new and rapidly changing technologies. These technologies are also being introduced into areas where the existing workforce needs to be retrained and enhanced to take advantage of the opportunities arising, for example, the use of the Internet in developing and maintaining supply chains. The rapid advances, particularly in computer technology, over recent years have led to a demand from a wide range of employers for graduates with the knowledge and skills provided by this programme.

Assessment

Student work is assessed through a combination of coursework, lab based practical examinations and written examinations. The final mark for some modules may include one or more pieces of coursework set and completed during the module. Project work is assessed by a written report and oral presentation.

Career Opportunities

eCommerce continues to grow nationally and internationally. Graduates of this programme should be well placed to play a role in that expansion.

Although the UK already has a significant proportion of industries which rely on eCommerce, there remains a shortage of people with the relevant technical knowledge and skills to work in the industry. The skills and knowledge gained throughout the programme will prepare students for both employment within the eCommerce industry and within the computing area on a wider perspective.

The program is designed to allow the graduate of MSc eCommerce to work in a number of different roles. Graduates may seek roles on the business side of eCommerce, for example in marketing, or as an advisor to an eCommerce company. Other graduates may seek roles in software development. eCommerce is popular and is growing nationally and internationally. Graduates of this programme should be well placed to play a role in that expansion.

It is expected that graduates would seek positions such as:
-Web Designer
-Usability consultant
-e-Commerce advisor
-Marketing consultant
-Project manager

Who is it for?

The course is for motivated students who enjoy working within high-pressure environments often to tight deadlines. You will need a good undergraduate degree as well as the tenacity and patience to understand business systems and the ability to adapt to constant change.

Objectives

There is a common misconception in building business systems: that users know their requirements. Often they don’t. This postgraduate Business Systems Analysis programme has been designed to address this problem.

The MSc in Business Systems Analysis and Design is not about developing algorithms and coding. We work with technology but we are not technicians because we know that to become an IT consultant or business analyst, you need to understand the disparate areas that make up the discipline. This is a Masters degree where you will design a business system; in order to do this you will unpick the information infrastructure to find out if the system works.

Analysing a business system is a process that demands constant re-evaluation. By investigating system requirements, considering how information flows through it, and exploring the pitfalls that emerge within user hierarchies, at City we examine the business system as a whole. This approach is essential to respond to rapid business change.

These are some of the questions the course poses:
-What is the right system to address the problem?
-Does the system meet the needs of the business now and will it be able to adapt in the future?
-How is information flowing within the system?
-How will users interact with the system throughout the project life cycle?

Placements

As a student on this programme you can undertake an internship in the July to December period, for up to six months. You can work under a client’s direction for all or part of this time. Many students use the internship as an opportunity to carry out a specific project which forms the context for their final dissertation.

One current student is working within a user experience design company to investigate how scents affect the emotional perception of digital fruit images displayed on a desktop service.

Academic facilities

As a student on the MSc Business Systems Analysis and Design course you will have access to dedicated labs and use specialist software such as SAP. At City we also have access to Microsoft Dynamics ERP software to support the enterprise information system module. Microsoft Dynamics is an industry-based CRM system. As part of the University of London you can also become a member of Senate House Library for free with your student ID card.

Teaching and learning

We provide a diversity of teaching approaches so you get a diversity of learning experiences in the form of traditional lectures, live classroom demonstrations, tutorials, laboratories, and TV studio role-playing. We encourage you to engage with the material in an active way. As a postgraduate student, we expect you to take responsibility for your own learning and use non-timetabled hours for your own private study or group interactions.

You will be assessed in a variety of ways from coursework and laboratory work to presentations, examinations and a project dissertation. By successfully completing eight taught modules and the research project you will be awarded a Master of Science (MSc) degree. All modules in this course are supported by Moodle, City's online learning environment.

The course is available full time (12 months) and part time (up to 28 months - two days a week). The Department is aware that this involves considerable commitment from part-time students, and we try to be as flexible as we can so you can successfully combine your work and study.

By completing eight modules and the dissertation you will be awarded 180 credits and a Masters level qualification. Alternatively, if you do not complete the dissertation but have successfully completed the eight modules, you will be awarded 120 credits and a postgraduate diploma. If you successfully complete four modules (60 credits) you will be awarded a postgraduate certificate.

Modules

There are six core modules and four electives from which you can choose two topics. Practical work is emphasised throughout the degree programme to develop your understanding and skills, which is strengthened by interactive teamwork. The course has an excellent track record in producing employable hybrid IT/business professionals.

In the industry you need to communicate your expertise in lay terms. The modules give you experience in working on group projects so you can manage roles and responsibilities and build a set of professional values. The core content will also give you the ability to set strategies, manage information flows and deal with problems such as overload and risk.

The course develops:
-Skills in business awareness, design and consultancy to facilitate the alignment of IT systems and services to business objectives
-The specialist understanding of theoretical principles in business systems analysis and design.
-Technical skills, through practical laboratory work, so you can apply your knowledge of IT and how it affects business competitiveness.
