What will you study?
You will study the types and characteristics of innovation, as well as the major barriers to the spread of innovation. This will enable you to recognise and welcome the increased rate of change and instability in the business and technology fields.
During the IT and Strategic Innovation course at Kingston University, you will gain an understanding of the role of IT and information systems in encouraging, capturing and managing innovation in an organisation and how this relates to constructing better value chains by using knowledge management, data mining, data governance, decision making and business intelligence.
There is input from especially the "Big Data" research group. You will also be encouraged to acquire Agile qualifications as an integral part of your ability to organise, manage and risk-manage large and small IT projects.
