    Course Summary

    The University of Wolverhampton’s MSc degree program in Information Technology Management was designed to me easily approachable for Information Systems (IS) and Information Technology (IT) practitioners at all levels who feel that their career trajectory would be improved by learning the unique skillset of the IS and IT manager. You could even launch your own consultancy.

    Your competencies will be constantly tested, and you’ll learn to make the most of reflexive analysis with constant feedback and constructive advice and criticism.

    As a part of this degree you’ll come to understand how the management of IS and IT departments, consultancies and other organisations is unique, demanding skills most managers and indeed most IT and IT professionals do not possess. You’ll develop both a range of professional competencies and the ability to lead in a business context. You’ll be able to manage practical service delivery as well as IT problem solving and research.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Course Outline

    This degree program is typically delivered over 12 months at full time. The core of the program is your MSc research project, worth a full 120 credits. You will take three three other modules, each worth a further 20 credits, for 180 in total.

    Core Modules Include:

    • Research Methods and Study Skills
    • Project and Programme Management
    • Systems Acquisition Management

    Optional Modules Include:

    • Business Analysis and Consultancy Skills
    • E-Business Design Management

    By the time you’ve graduated, you’ll have demonstrated top notch management skills as well as a technical mastery of the demands of the IT and IS industries. You’ll have a high level of leadership skills, and be able to apply critical thinking and the scientific method to both academic and practical problems consistently and logically. You’ll have developed the ability to operate without close supervision, and will have taken the lead in planning, researching and presenting an in-depth, Master’s level IT Management research project.

    Learning And Teaching

    Wolverhampton’s teaching methods vary depending on the subject matter being presented, but typically include lectures, skills workshops and blended learning experiences at a minimum. You’ll also do a great deal of reading, study and revision, either individually or in small groups.

    Employability skills will be included at every stage of your education. You’ll also gain a wide range of practical project management skills which are custom tailored to the IT and IS industries.

    Career Possibilities

    This degree is an excellent preparation for a career, as industries of all kinds, both within and outside of the UK, are recruiting skilled IT and Computing graduates in higher and higher numbers. As employment soars, the need for trained managers with the understanding of the IT field soars as well. Recent graduates have become Business Analysts, IT Managers, E-Business Managers, Technical Business Advisers and Sustainability Coordinators in a range of different industries.

    Entry & Credit

    Successful completion will result in a 1 year MSc degree.

    Applicants must typically have earned a 2:2 undergraduate degree or better, or the international equivalent. The full list of qualifications which are accepted can be found here.

    All classes are taught in English, and international students will be required to show proficiency in English by scoring well on an approved test. An IELTS score of 6.0 overall and no area scoring less than 5.5 would qualify, for example.
