Our students will have the necessary conceptual and practical knowledge to identify organisational problems and deal with them in an appropriate manner.
This programme looks at the development, management, organisation and use of information technology within organisations. Our programme content consists of a number of core modules such as knowledge management, project management and managing change that we view as being fundamental. We also provide options that offer students the chance to specialise in either management issues (e-business), organisational issues (digital divide) or in the technology domain.
The cultural diversity, coupled with the differing educational backgrounds and experience of our students, provides a stimulating and rich learning environment. Most of our graduates are now working as managers, consultants, project managers and systems analysts in a variety of public and private-sector organisations across the world.
