The BSc Business Information Systems course has been designed to prepare IT professionals with strong background in information systems management and proper understanding of business context and needs.

The teaching and learning strategy employed by the course Team aims to enable you to maximise your own individual learning style as well as developing your ability to work in teams.

On any individual module, a combination of teaching approaches will be used depending on the nature of the subject being taught, and the specified learning outcomes.

In addition to specific business skills, you will learn during your programme, you will have the opportunity to develop a range of skills, which are transferable to other contexts.

Project management skills are covered in a number of modules whilst coursework exercises often involve submission of a written report, providing you with extensive experience of report writing and in some cases oral presentations, which help develop your verbal communication skills.

Transferable skills enable you to perform a range of business related skills with awareness of the necessary techniques, their potential uses and hazards.

You will develop a degree of self-reflection and begin to recognise your own strengths and weaknesses. Transferable skills also enable you to work within a relevant ethos and use a range of learning resources.
