POSTGRADUATE DEGREE / MSC IT MANAGEMENT

Previous page

INTRODUCTION

The MSc in the Information Technology Management (ITM) has been designed to develop knowledge and the ability to manage information technology. Information Technology applies modern technologies to the creation, management and use of information, encompassing all forms of technology used to create, store, exchange and utilise information in its various forms including business data, conversations, still images, motion pictures and multimedia presentations. Information technology management is a combination of two branches of study, Information technology and Management. This discipline aims to achieve the goals and objectives of an organisation through managing information.

The aim of the programme is to provide a postgraduate course of study, which will:

  • Produce hybrid managers; that is, managers who combine information technology and computing skills with business and organisational skills.
  • Enable a critical evaluation of information technology in order to ensure its effective deployment in an organisation.
  • Provide the students with the ability to take the lead in the adoption of a systematic, professional, quality approach to IT systems development.
  • Enable the student to work with and manage technical specialists, especially on larger projects.
  • Identify the appropriate role for information technology in developing and implementing corporate strategy. 

Programme regulations

The programme operates under University of Sunderland standard postgraduate regulations. This programme is currently awaiting in-country approval to start the execution.

Programme content

The curriculum of the programme has been developed to meet the current needs of employers across diverse fields, both national and international, in line with the guidance of the relevant professional institutes. The curriculum predominately consists of technical knowledge and skills to enable the pursuit of a career in a wide variety of Information Technology Management environments.  In addition, close attention has been given to ensuring that the curriculum is at the forefront of the academic discipline and clearly at “M” level in line with QAA framework benchmarks for postgraduate qualifications.
These requirements are fulfilled by the Programme Team who are responsible for curricular design and delivery, and the team’s professional activities underpin and support the programme.

In terms of progression, Stage 1 may be regarded as the Postgraduate Certificate stage, which requires 60 module credits.  Stage 2 is the Postgraduate Diploma stage (120 module credits). The final stage is the MSc stage (180 module credits total).  There are no pre-requisites within the programme and therefore the modules, which compromise Stage 1 / Stage 2 are interchangeable, depending on entry date (Feb or Oct). The project (PROM01) will always be the last module undertaken.
