In a world where commercial success relies on digital communications, high speed data transfer and real-time analysis, where information technology (IT) is constantly advancing, companies need professionals capable of developing diverse, bespoke and often novel technology solutions to help them identify and maintain competitive advantage.

Aimed at graduates with experience in computing or IT, this specialist practice-based course has been developed and delivered in partnership with Coventry Business School. It aims to develop complementary skills in business and technology, providing a solid foundation in management, including budgeting, resource allocation and organisation, together with sound technical knowledge of aspects such as software design, network planning and technical support.

Coventry University is ranked in the top 20 best universities in the country for both ‘Computer Sciences’ and ‘Business and Management Studies’ by the Guardian University Guide 2017. Well-established industry connections, with companies like IBM, provide opportunities for collaborative projects and guest lectures from expert practitioners who will share their experiences, both challenges and successes.
