Derby Business School brochure

Relevant, respected, rewarding

BSc (Hons) Information Technology Management for Business is at the heart of Derby Business School, where the knowledge and skills you learn will be closely related to people and to delivering business benefit. For example: Project Management – not just planning and reporting but also how to deal with difficult stakeholders, how to lead and, most importantly, how to succeed.

IT in organisations is not only considered in terms of the systems but also how people use IT, the expectations that decision-makers now have of IT design, and how to measure the benefits of an IT project.

You will learn communication, teamwork and leadership skills in stage one, applying and improving them throughout the rest of the course, as well as having the opportunity to have your CV reviewed and practise your interview skills. These skills can set you apart in the job market.

You will be introduced to programming through appreciating users’ experience, the benefits that IT can bring and the principles of good web design before moving on to learning programming in an environment where we never lose sight of the end goal: reliable, maintainable and tested programs that deliver something useful.

Learning outside the classroom

You'll have plenty of opportunities to meet business professionals from large and well known organisations. You will visit them to learn about how they function, and also work with some on live projects in some of your modules.

Throughout BSc (Hons) Information Technology Management for Business, Derby Business School hosts many events which will connect you with the business community so you can further develop your business acumen, networking skills and help prepare you for your future career.
