Overview

Sheffield is a world-leader in information systems. Our research on health informatics, e-business, digital technology and social media influences the way businesses, governments and individuals interact.

IT and information systems drive and control organisations. If your approach isn’t dynamic, responsive and adaptable, you won’t survive. But understanding the technology isn’t enough.

Organisations are looking for developers who also understand management practice. Professionals who understand how information systems can change the structure and processes of a business.

This course delivers, giving you a grounding in management practices and developing your skills so you can play a key role in the design, implementation and development of information systems.

You can apply to base your dissertation on a project which you would work on with an external organisation. Recent projects include working with a national company to develop a prescriptive method for qualifying risks and quantifying the value added by advanced service systems for process packaging equipment.
