    Course Summary

    Manchester’s IT Management for Business BSc program was created with the help of the Tech Partnership as well as several leading employers worldwide. Its goal is to produce exactly the kind of graduates that today’s companies need in great numbers – the managers who will bridge the gaps between the ‘business’ and ‘IT’ modes of thinking.

    More than 60 large employers contribute to the ongoing development of this course. Brands like Unilever, IBM, Deloitte, Credit Suisse, BT, BBC and Accenture all contribute resources such as guru lectures, mentoring programs and professional development events in order to ensure that they can hire graduates with the exact skillsets they need.
