Information Systems Management MSc

Overview

Please note the application deadline for this course is Friday 25th August 2017. Any applications after this date will be considered on an individual basis, subject to course vacancies.

About the course

Information systems are becoming ever more central to society, especially in business and industry – and this course will develop your ability to use these systems to manage the complex challenges that can confront businesses.

By the end of the course, you should be able to:

  • Explore issues relevant to information systems development in the context of modern business environments and needs.
  • Express a rounded awareness of the state-of-the-art in relation to the role of information systems in the enterprise environment and the importance of strategic alignment.
  • Understand the changing nature of information systems and the implications of this for the requisite dynamic balancing of the social and the technical.
  • Reflect, critically, on the state-of-the art of both the practice and theory of organisational-level systems development and critically understand information systems and their role in organisational effectiveness.

Aims

Information systems managers provide a pivotal role in helping organisations get the most from the technologies they deploy. As society and technology develop, the most important skills for the future lie in the development of individuals with the ability to both understand and manage these complex and interrelated systems.

Aspects of business that were once seen in isolation – the people, organisation, process, information and technology – are now expected to operate as part of a seamless whole, both within and across enterprises. Information systems managers are responsible for delivering this seamless integration efficiency.

The jobs that require the knowledge and skills that you will learn on this course in Information Systems Management include business analysts, systems development analysts and consultants (both technical and managerial).
