Overview

Developed in conjunction with employers through the Tech Partnership, a network of over 100-technology focussed businesses, this course has been specifically designed to address industry demand, delivering work ready graduates with the skills and professionalism that employers are looking for.

The course is a mix of four key themes

- An understanding of how business organisations work and what drives them
- An understanding of how Information Technology and Information Systems work and how they can be applied to provide competitive advantage
- An understanding of how to manage the implementation of technology projects
- Development and practice of the interpersonal skills required for a successful career

Offering an insight into the IT sector, this degree will give you an in-depth understanding of technology and the ways in which it can be used to transform organisations.

Industry engagement, opportunities to engage with business and a year-long industrial placement provide you with the industry know-how and direct experience that will prepare you for a successful management role in IT.

This programme has been developed in conjunction with The Tech Partnership with the help of leading employers to ensure students develop the specific IT and business skills demanded by employers.
