Course Summary

This MBA course is for aspiring managers who understand and embrace the role of technology within a business and who are ready to make the leap into management within an IT environment. The programme will provide you with a broader understanding of business through considering issues such as human and financial resources, general management, information technology management and how they impact upon a business. Importantly, we take a strategic perspective on business and management and help you to develop the skills to contribute to major decisions made by organisations about their future. Such decisions are often centred on technology. You are not required to have a background in information technology since applicants are welcomed from any discipline and a wide range of job roles. Many entrants to an MBA in Information Technology have a science or technology qualification so it is not necessary that you have studied business or management before.

This MBA is designed to allow you to develop an understanding of key aspects of business and management with an information technology focus. You will therefore study aspects related to accounting and finance, human resource management, marketing and strategy. Throughout the programme there is a combination of different forms of assessment to test intellectual development, vocational capability and critical thinking. Coursework often involves both individual and group-based working with case studies and problem solving exercises being used. Examinations take a variety of forms, using both seen and unseen questions. This MBA will help to equip you for a range of career opportunities in both general management and specialist functions. Typical career paths on successful completion of the programme include accountancy, administration, banking, education, finance, human resource management, marketing, public and private sector management, retailing and enterprise.
