Overview

Our MSc Business Information Management programme offers a strong and fairly unique combination of practical, analytical and theoretical courses. It will build your expertise and provide comprehensive training across business management and software engineering.

The programme’s emphasis is not on computer programming but on developing relevant analytical and project management skills to ensure you can become an excellent communicator / manager operating between hard-core software developers and business managers.

Students can specialise in areas like e-commerce, online learning and IT project management. The programme studies IT, but does not require students to design programs or write software.

This approach provides our computer science graduates with the best possible prospects for pursing a research, software requirements engineer, business and IT analytics, or IT journalism career.

Accreditation

The Dubai Campus is accredited by the Knowledge and Human Development Authority (KHDA) and fully licensed to teach its degrees in Dubai.  All graduates receive a British degree that is accredited by Royal Charter in the UK.

Entry requirements

For MSc entry, a good relevant Honours degree (first or second class) or equivalent overseas qualifications will be considered. Given the clear practical element of the programmes, we will also consider non-graduate candidates holding less than a good Honours degree, or its equivalent, but with compensating qualifications or experience may be admitted to the Postgraduate Diploma programme. Transfer to the MSc will be possible later on if exams and course work are at MSc level.
