Overview

The ability to exploit information and information technology (IT) is essential to drive innovation and growth in the modern global organisation. Our BSc Business Information Systems programme embeds a systems philosophy of connectivity, adopting a socio-technical approach, connecting people, processes and information in the design of IT applications.

The efficient and effective management of information, IT, people and processes is critical in the digital corporate arena. You will work collaboratively with tutors, researchers and businesses, applying practice-based skills to real-life case study materials and live project briefs.

The design, development and use of IT systems is explored, enabling you to gain key skills in database design and application development, as well as understating how organisations can harness the data being captured through the Internet of Things.

You will use technical, research, design and organisational skills, enabling you to be employable in a wide range of mediums, and you’ll co-operate with others, planning and undertaking tasks, as well as communicating effectively through writing and presentations.

Programme structure

You will experience a wide variety of subjects and methods, all reinforced by practical, hands-on learning activities. You will be encouraged to undertake self-directed study, enhancing your organisational and management skills.

Our teaching philosophy revolves around you both learning by doing and transferring acquired knowledge to others by teaching others. Activities will occur both individually and in teams, with tutors providing leadership and mentoring aimed at supporting your transition into independent learners. In this partnership we will be encouraging you to become proactive, so that you can develop your confidence to undertake a range of progressively complex and challenging tasks.

You will demonstrate acquisition of these work-related skills by using an assessment strategy that is reflective of industry needs. Assessments will be varied and include knowledge and skills tests. However, the focus will predominantly be on the use of coursework. Here you will learn to present your ideas and showcase your work to a variety of audiences, both as members of a team or individually. You will also learn to present your ideas through written pieces of work for example by formulating proposals and reports.

Career opportunities

You will be given the practical, technical and academic skills that will help you to stand out when you step onto the job ladder.

When you study with us you’ll learn all the key aspects of business information technology that will help you to get a job, from underlying concepts and principles to the relationship between theory and practice.

You’ll use advanced software development and computer programming labs, as well as dedicated facilities for systems analysis, database design and development, e-commerce, and business intelligence.

You will also benefit from our strong links with companies such as SAS, SAP, Oracle, Microsoft, Samsung and IBM, which keep your course relevant, real-life, and respected by employers.

We ensure that you’ll graduate with the skills, creativity and experience needed to succeed in employment.
