The Masters in E-Business and Innovation is a multidisciplinary programme, taught by experts from both the Management School and the School of Computing and Communications. It gives ambitious graduates the conceptual knowledge and practical skills needed to maximise the potential of digital technologies in shaping innovation in business. 


One central aspect that differentiates this course from other e-business Masters is its focus on three key areas – entrepreneurship, e-business, and digital technologies – and how the interplay between them drives innovation in business. It provides a deep understanding of how IT can be used by businesses to gain competitive advantage, open up new markets, enhance relationships with customers and suppliers, and streamline many of the firm’s core processes and systems.

The rigorous analytical and conceptual skills you will be developing are complemented by an emphasis on interpersonal and leadership skills, including persuasion, negotiation, and team-building. You will benefit from regular guest lectures by entrepreneurs, managers and developers, as well as learning directly from IBM specialists thanks to our special teaching partnership. In addition, you will have the opportunity to put your skills into practice in a ten-week, company-based consultancy project for a real client, along with a Hackathon aimed at using technology to find innovative solutions to problems.

Business and technological knowledge, as well as interpersonal and leadership skills, is a powerful combination that proves highly attractive to employers and opens up a wide range of career opportunities. This programme is also available as a Postgraduate Diploma, with students following the same curriculum minus the dissertation.
