The MSc Information Systems offers you a programme of study that allows you to develop: an understanding of the issues in designing and developing information systems; understanding of contemporary approaches to analysis and design; exposure to key areas of knowledge for developing, analysing and understanding systems; a broad understanding of the context and success factors for successful information systems projects.
