Course description

Developed in collaboration with the Tech Partnership and leading global blue-chip employers, Information Technology Management for Business (ITMB) aims to create `the ideal graduate' whose skills cover the challenging middle ground between business and IT. This particular ITMB course includes the opportunity to specialise in strategy and economics alongside IT and business as well as a work placement in your penultimate year.

Our flexible ITMB degree courses share a common first year before allowing you to focus on your chosen specialism to enhance your career prospects. Since these degrees are identical in the first year, transfer between them is straightforward, so you should apply for only one of them.

The uniqueness of the course is recognised by over 60 employers who maintain its quality and relevance to their sectors. Accenture, BBC, BT, Credit Suisse, Deloitte, IBM, Unilever and many other companies help to deliver the course through project work, guru lectures, student mentoring and a range of professional development activities.
