This is a fantastic opportunity to study a highly regarded, unique masters programme. The course is recognised as a leading information systems masters programme and is ranked 18th in Europe and 3rd in the UK by Eduniversal Best Masters Ranking 2018. It has been developed in collaboration with our industry partners. This ensures that we’re providing you with the specialist skills needed for business analysis and information systems roles, which in turn will enhance your employability.

What sets this course apart from other masters programmes is its focus on developing practical skills which are in high demand in the job market. The vast majority of modules are very hands-on and involve applied learning activities. For example, with our Developing Business Systems Workshop, you’ll have the chance to gain first-hand experience of planning and implementing a consultancy project from start to finish. What makes this truly unique is that we actively monitor your progress and vary the tasks and their complexity to ensure you get the most out of the experience.

You’ll learn the various tools and approaches used to analyse business and system requirements, which will give you the skills and know-how to develop ICT systems to meet the needs of businesses. You’ll also learn key project management processes and techniques. This will provide you with a theoretical background as well as practical experience, so you’re confident and capable of planning, monitoring and evaluating major commercial projects.

There’s the chance to tailor the course to suit your interests or your career ambitions. You can choose from a range of elective modules, which cover specialist areas of business analytics, ICT or complimentary business subjects. Optional modules include Data Mining and Business Intelligence, Enterprise Resource Planning as well as Operations Management.
