This MSc in Knowledge and Information Systems Management will give you a deeper understanding of the ways in which information and knowledge are generated, used and shared within organisations. Knowledge and Information Systems Management is offered by University of Southampton.
The course covers the strategic application of information technologies, including recent trends such as big data and cloud computing, and the development and use of information systems. You’ll also learn about the social and organisational aspects of managing knowledge, which are covered in more depth than on most other similar UK masters courses.
Underpinned by our academics’ specialist research, the modules will encourage you to explore key theories through case studies and critical discussion of research papers. You’ll also gain practical analysis, design and consultancy skills that are highly attractive to employers.
You’ll learn about current digital technology trends, such as big data and cloud computing, and how they fit into a broader organisational context – for example how they might benefit organisations and how any barriers to adoption might be overcome. You’ll also gain an understanding of how digital technologies can be an integral part of a digital business model that can enable companies to outsmart their competitors.
This MSc will be of interest if you have a background in information technology or engineering and wish to put your learning into a wider management or organisational context, or if your previous education or experience is in general management and you would like to learn more about how organisations build, use and manage information systems.
The MSc in Knowledge and Information Systems Management provides a strong foundation for those looking to progress their careers in this field or who want to carry out research in the discipline.
This course will prepare you for a role related to an organisation’s management of knowledge, the management of its IT function or its information systems provision. You could also choose to go into IT, digital or web consultancy. Potential roles include chief knowledge officer or knowledge manager, project lead, business or process analyst, IT or digital consultant, or IT manager. If you are interested in a career in academia, this degree is excellent preparation for further study at PhD level and beyond.
