Course Summary

This course focuses on the value of information and the principles and practice that underlie secure, effective and efficient business systems that exploit information in order to provide business benefit. Consequently there is a need to understand the strategic importance of information and develop agile, effective and secure ways to exploit it to its full potential. To do this, effective information capability management must be developed throughout the organisation so that the right information is available to the right people at the right time in an effective, efficient and secure manner. An appropriate infrastructure is required to enable effective information capability management to address strategic business needs. This is dependent on joined-up systems of processes, technology and appropriately skilled, competent and motivated people focused on delivering clearly understood business benefit. The Information Capability Management (ICM) MSc has been developed to address these important issues. This course is accredited by two professional bodies, the British Computer Society (BCS) and the Chartered Institute of Librarians and Information Professionals (CILIP), completion of the course can lead to chartered professional status. Upon successful completion of the PGCert/PgDip course you have the option to progress onto MSc.
