Course modules

Data Design

Understand how to approach data by addressing key questions about your intended business outcomes, and select the most appropriate data collection method. You will learn to design deployment approaches and implement instruments and systems for data collection to achieve valuable outcomes.

Data Handling and Decision-Making

With access to more data than ever, those equipped to handle and interpret this data can add real value to the workplace. The focus of this module is learning how to both interpret data, and make key business decisions shaping the future of an organisation.

Data Visualisation and Interpretation

Gain the crucial data skills that give businesses their significant competitive advantage by learning to present this data in a universally engaging manner, which can be understood by specialists and non-specialists alike.

Architecture Design

Learn to approach system design in a structured way to ensure the complex technologies and requirements are implemented effectively. This module evaluates current systems and methods, as well as emerging trends in hardware, software, and systems use. You will then evaluate the architecture of your own organisation, and make recommendations for improvements.

Technology and Trend Monitoring

Stay abreast of the rapidly changing technological environment in this strategic IT role. You’ll have the opportunity to evaluate emerging technologies and investigate the ways they are applied to current business practice. Using an analytical approach, you will evaluate the feasibility of implementing emerging IT trends into current business practices.

Business Change Management

As the pace and scale of change grows, the need to embrace developing and innovative IT solutions is essential. You will assess the implications of new solutions, and how to manage the process of change effectively. This module will evaluate issues such as sustainability and business process continuity, illustrating their impact on change management, and audit their use in current practice.

Research Project

This vital project gives you a chance to research an area of your choice, related to the programme theme, and develop your critical abilities. You’ll create a research proposal and choose between a conventional dissertation, or an academic article and presentation. Then you’ll apply all of your knowledge from the programme with the opportunity to link your research to your actual work needs.
