Working in the world of information systems can be exciting and rewarding, as businesses become more and more reliant on information systems to support innovation, decision making and day-to-day operations. The creative use of information systems can transform organisations, and successful enterprises require hybrid managers and analysts who can evaluate and use the tools, gauge the risks and provide the key insights and sound direction for strategic business planning.

This course develops your understanding of the business challenges of an enterprise, and your ability to conceive and manage solutions which are increasingly ICT-dependent. You will integrate your skills of problem solving and information systems modelling with your knowledge of business processes and environments. You will be able to consult on, support or develop the technological platforms of an enterprise to achieve competitive advantage, building a career in roles ranging from systems developer to business manager.

This course will give you a clear perspective of the current nature and practice of business information systems. In Year 1 you will be introduced to the main fundamental concepts and in Year 2 and Year 3 you will follow the specialist themes which interest you the most. You will take some modules offered by Westminster Business School.
