Course description

Our MSc in Advanced Computer Science and IT Management is taught in collaboration with Manchester Business School. As such, the programme benefits from the offerings of both schools.  Manchester Business School is the largest campus-based business and management school in the UK offering world-leading business education informed by leading edge theory and practice. Similarly, the School of Computer Science is renowned as a world-class centre of excellence in computing teaching and research.   

This course is ideal for students who have the desire to drive technology into effective use in business. Information systems are pervasive in every aspect of industry, business and society and therefore there is growing demand for people who have a high level of technical knowledge and are prepared for a leadership role, utilising entrepreneurial and management skills in the solution of business problems. This course is centred around a Management theme, which encompasses relevant MBS course units, and combines it with a choice of complementary Computer Science themes such as Data Management, Software Engineering, and Advanced Web Technologies. The students take modules from 4 theme pools, two in IT Management and two in Computer Science. The course also provides a specialisation in Information Management .
