Why study MSc Business Information Systems Management at Middlesex?
From revenue reports and customer data to figures used to forecast sales and analyse trends, the useful knowledge which organisations can gain from information systems is virtually limitless. Experts who can use the technology intelligently and creatively to add value to a business, combining technical ability with an understanding of an organisation's needs, are in high demand. Our course is designed to meet that demand.
Our close links with industry have allowed us to develop a highly practical course, focusing on the skills employers tell us they want. We work with companies such as Microsoft and Siemens, and we are a Cisco local academy and a Xilinx university partner – meaning our students have access to the latest equipment, and our staff can make use of specialist teaching materials and workshops. Our award-winning technology centre has a specialist network, software, digital and wireless laboratories equipped with industry-standard software and hardware.
Our strong research culture helps our courses to stay innovative. Our research teams work on projects with leading companies in the UK and overseas, and the university is home to research centres including the Human Interactive Systems Laboratory, which explores the design of interactive technologies for education, training and medical use. We encourage our students to publish the research they carry out and many have gone on to present their work at conferences.
Our course is accredited by the British Computer Society for Chartered IT Professional (CITP) status. This means that upon graduation, you'll have fulfilled the academic requirement for achieving chartered status, though you'll need to complete further professional development. Our students are very much involved with the BCS and often attend seminars and other events - some have even sat on the society's Quality Specialist Group committee.
Guest lectures from software engineers and managers give students an insight into how information systems are used in industry. In the past, we've had speakers from Microsoft, Virgin Atlantic and General Electric.
Our Information Systems Quality Management module gives our course a unique slant – no other institution offers a similar module.
You can start your studies in either September or January.
