Course Description

Get the skills you need to manage a software project and to monitor its progress and outcomes with a Master’s in Management of Business Information Technology.

This course welcomes applicants with a good first degree in any discipline, and it is particularly suited to those with a degree in business or with business experience. You'll gain an understanding of the information technologies used in e-commerce and how they provide us with new ways of organising and managing business. You study a combination of subjects, from technical elements such as systems design and user experience to managerial elements such as project management, IT auditing, and governance.

By the end of this business information technology course, you'll be able to develop a system based on requirements, considering graphic user interface and database implementation. You'll also have the project management skills required for IT consultancy and strategic decision-making.

What you should know about this course

  • You will learn the vital requirements for a business system, and be given an in-depth understanding of the complex nature of software development.

  • This course will help you will grow practical skills in tackling user interface and database design issues, as well as system process modelling topics.

  • You will learn how to manage a software project by producing the criteria which will monitor the project’s progress and measure outcomes.

  • The University of Greenwich has a long-standing relationship with the British Computer Society (BCS), which accredits our computing degree programmes. As this programme was extensively updated in 2019, it has a current designation of Partial Chartered Information Technology Professional (CITP) accreditation for the 2019 intake. The accreditation status is expected to be confirmed in spring 2022 after the first cohort of students graduate. Students will be kept updated on the status of this. In the very unlikely event that this does not progress as expected the university will support students with individual BCS membership applications at the point of graduation.

On this course, students are assessed by coursework, examinations and a project. Some modules may also include practice assessments, presentations, demonstrations, and reports, which help you to monitor progress and make continual improvement.
