Introduction

BSc Management and Information Technology (MIT) is for students interested in business, management and computer science. The degree looks critically and brings a person-centred approach to modern management ideas and theories of the firm, and how technology is employed across business. Because the digital economy is the driver of global business innovation, our 2022 cohort comprises more than 40 diverse students from 16 countries, including UK, Europe, China, India and the rest of the world. Our MIT alumni are in the UK and worldwide.

This course is accredited by TechSkills as meeting industry standards for quality and relevance to tech and digital careers. Courses carrying this Tech Industry Gold accreditation provide students with the blend of digital, business and professional skills employers need. On graduation, our Tech Industry Gold students also receive certified skills credentials from TechSkills.

Course overview

This course offers a comprehensive exploration of business and management, information systems, and computer science. Our flexible degree is delivered by academic and practitioner experts to leverage your strengths and fuel your career ambitions.

We use real-world examples to question the role of information technology in business. You will learn from our cutting-edge researchers how to manage teams and projects in IT-related business scenarios, apply IT solutions and evaluate digital knowledge. Throughout, you can attend TechSkills events and conferences and benefit from their networking opportunities with employers. Wide-ranging guest practitioner talks provide insight into the technology industry.

Your first year provides a strong foundation in information systems, business analytics and software development, and covers key debates in management, organisations and work. You can also study areas such as entrepreneurship, marketing and operations management.

In your second year, you move on to areas such as financial accounting, managing business information systems, knowledge and data, project management and software design. You can choose from options ranging from business ethics to human resource management and have the opportunity to conduct a piece of business research.

In your final year, you look at how to develop business information systems and how to manage change from a psychological perspective, and study options such as project management and ethical responsibility in business.

The course structure below shows examples of some of the optional modules you might take throughout the course.
