The degree curriculum was created in partnership with the Government's e- Skills UK unit and endorsed by leading employers. It is available exclusively at this site in northern England. Employers are increasingly seeking business professionals who have a thorough knowledge of Information Systems and a sound grasp of technology but who also understand the business environment and can hit the ground running.
Karen Price, Chief Executive for e-skills UK recently said:
“ITMB is providing students with the skills that are in great demand by employers.”
and went on to say
“This gives students unprecedented access to a wide range of industry insights and contact - from lectures to work experience, from mentors to competitions - as well as cross-university events that bring together peers from across the country.”
During the course, you will be involved in business, working closely with one or more active partner companies. You'll have the chance to make a positive contribution to projects, build relationships with company staff and by achieving such success, you'll have a head start to employment.
The course is focused on four main areas:
- Understanding how business works and its key needs
- Understanding technology and its application to business
- How to implement successful technology projects to meet business requirements
- The personal and interpersonal skills needed to work successfully in teams.
This is what employers tell us is important – and you can get it here at Northumbria University.
