Our MSc Information Technology (Business) offers the best set of practical, analytical and theoretical courses for a combined business management and software engineering based training. It covers the design and development of IT systems, the management of IT, business organisation and strategy, project leadership and e-commerce.
Such a strong and unique combination is hard to find and gives our graduates an edge in their pursuit of a research, software requirements engineer, business and IT analytics or IT journalism career.
The programme does not emphasise computer programming but instead seeks to develop graduates who are equipped with excellent analytical and project management skills to help them become the best communicators / managers working between hard-core software developers and business managers.
In some cases, the MSc project can be carried out in collaboration with an outside industrial or academic organisation.
You can exit at the end of 18 months with PgDip Information Technology (Software Systems).
Entry requires a good honours degree in a numerate subject area. Candidates holding a little less than a good honours degree or its equivalent but with compensating qualifications or experience may be admitted to the Postgraduate Diploma programme. Transfer to the MSc will be possible later on if exam and course work are at MSc level.
