MSc Information Management
Management of information is key to the success of modern organisations. Studies show that information professionals should take account of business strategy, cultural and behavioural issues and have an understanding of systems concepts.
Consequently, there is a need for professionals to employ appropriate approaches to systems development in a diverse variety of contexts. We recognise the demand for such talent and our course will enhance your ability to communicate with the business community to identify organisational information requirements, to build models of those requirements and develop successful systems.
This course has strong links with the industry, ensuring what we teach is up-to-date and responds to the needs of the sector.
