Finance and information management are closely related in practice. Financial decisions and predictions need to be based upon information, information that needs effective management. Often such information is contained in an information system. Finance has been the domain of – and inspiration for - many advances in information management, such as Function Point Analysis and Structured Systems Analysis and Design Method.
The MSc Finance and Information Management has seven core modules: three more concerned with finance; three more concerned with information management; and one in preparation for the self managed elements. Whichever of the self managed elements the student chooses, it must be focused on the interconnection of finance and information management rather than purely finance or information management.
Employability & Careers
Aspiring Information Systems Project Managers, Business Analysts and, especially, Information Auditors need an appreciation of both finance and information management.
