Overview

The MSc in Computing (Information Systems Processes) programme is designed to enhance the participants’ ability to contribute to the digital transformation of organisations across a range of industries. A combination of technological, management, and organisational perspectives equip graduates with a range of transferable skills.

Digital systems are transforming every process, from manufacturing to financial services, from customer support to supplier relationships, from government departments to the United Nations. These transformations involve a complex interweaving of human and machine. This programme carefully balances technological, management and organisational perspectives to provide graduates with the insight, tools and skills they need to manage the complex realities of digital transformation.
