About

The IT and Strategic Innovation course at Kingston University aims to provide an understanding of the characteristics of high-tech innovation combined with the leadership and management values necessary for entrepreneurship (new venture creation) or for successfully creating and managing strategic innovation both from within an organisation as well as from outside, eg as an IT consultant.

Overview

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.

Careers and recruitment advice

The Faculty of Science, Engineering and Computing has a specialist employability team. It provides friendly and high-quality careers and recruitment guidance, including advice and sessions on job-seeking skills such as CV preparation, application forms and interview techniques. Specific advice is also available for international students about the UK job market and employers' expectations and requirements.
