What sets this course apart from other masters programmes is its focus on developing practical skills which are in high demand in the job market. The vast majority of modules are very hands-on and involve applied learning activities. For example, with our Developing Business Systems Workshop, you’ll have the chance to gain first-hand experience of planning and implementing a consultancy project from start to finish. What makes this truly unique is that we actively monitor your progress and vary the tasks and their complexity to ensure you get the most out of the experience.
You’ll learn the various tools and approaches used to analyse business and system requirements, which will give you the skills and know-how to develop ICT systems to meet the needs of businesses. You’ll also learn key project management processes and techniques. This will provide you with a theoretical background as well as practical experience, so you’re confident and capable of planning, monitoring and evaluating major commercial projects.
You’ll study The Aston Global Advantage module which focuses on professional development and employability, helping you to apply the key skills that you will gain throughout the year.
During the Aston Global Advantage, you’ll also have the opportunity to study abroad with one of our international partners, undertake an internship placement in the UK or overseas or get involved in a global business challenge simulation.
