This IT-Enabled Innovation program from Maynooth University differs from many other IT programmes because of its leading industry inputs and also because it sets IT management in the context of the business environment. This is not a programme to develop stand-alone technical specialists. Instead, this course develops the capacity for participants to understand how IT operates both as a function and as a key interrelated resource within an organisational context. This involves understanding people, work processes, relationships, organisation structures, and organisation strategies, and how all of these impact on and are impacted by Information Technology.
This course focuses on IT-enabled innovation as a foundational concept central to the success of organisations today. We adopt a broad appreciation of IT-enabled innovation which allows for a variety of teaching styles and a topical emphasis for the learning outcomes. This approach accommodates a range of different types of innovation (i.e. process, product, and business model innovation, as well as service innovation), and multiple stages for the innovation process (i.e. ideation, development, diffusion, adoption, and impact). Because of the rapid pace of IT innovation, this highly regarded programme is revised annually and its value is reflected in it being shortlisted for the 2018 and 2019 Irish Postgraduate Course of the Year Awards in two categories.
Students graduating from this programme will have a distinctive and career defining capability. They are afforded a unique opportunity to explore and address current critical IT-Enabled Innovation challenges - learning from the lessons of many leading global organisations. The programme contributes to the career development needs of current and future IT executives in both public and private sector organisations. The teaching material takes a broad, cross-sectoral, and international approach.
This programme also offers students the opportunity to work with leading companies either as a consultant, through a business research project or some students will complete an industry placement. The success of this course is reflected in a recent survey we conducted which showed 100% of respondents in full time employment, with over 80% of these in managerial roles. Some of the roles our graduates fill include Business Analyst, Process and Governance Co-coordinator, Marketing Executive, Director, Senior IT Project Manager, Games Development Advisor and Sales Executive.
This course also provides graduates with the tools to continue their professional development long after they graduate through a specially designed Career Planning and Development module.
