Build your business brain, your technical understanding, and your ability to bring them both together, with this MSc Information Systems. You'll learn about information system management for a professional context, master computer programming and software development, and sharpen your entrepreneurial leadership skills for senior or specialist roles in the tech sector.

And you'll focus on solving complex business problems, by applying what you learn to the needs of your current or desired users.
Your course is shaped by advice from an industry advisory board, to ensure you have the skills and knowledge the sector currently needs, and you'll be learning from lecturers who maintain working partnerships with information technology companies. You'll have opportunities to meet guest lecturers from companies like IBM and Oracle, to work on real-life case studies, and to solve a live business problem in your final project
