These modules are running in the academic year 2020/21. We also plan to offer them in future academic years. They may become unavailable due to staff availability, student demand or updates to our curriculum. It may not be possible to take some module combinations due to timetabling constraints. We’ll make sure to let our applicants know of such changes to modules at the earliest opportunity.

Core modules

Core modules are taken by all students on the course. They give you a solid grounding in your chosen subject and prepare you to explore the topics that interest you most.

    Options

    Alongside your core modules, you can choose options to broaden your horizons and tailor your course to your interests. This list gives you a flavour of our options, which are kept under review and may change, for example in response to student feedback or the latest research.

    While it’s our aim for students to take their preferred combinations of options, this can’t be guaranteed and will be subject to timetabling. Options may be grouped and if so, students will be able to choose a set number of options from the selection available in any particular group.

      MSc project

      You’ll complete a substantial MSc project, which is often practical as well as theoretical. You may have opportunities to work with an industrial partner.

      Some of our previous students’ project work has led to journal and conference publication, giving them a head start in their careers.

      The project demands individual responsibility and promotes skills development in:

      • project management and planning
      • resourcing and scheduling
      • documentation and communication
      • critical awareness and creative thinking.

      You’re encouraged to seek a project with a commercial/industrial flavour. Finding an industrial sponsor or host is fine, though you’ll still need an academic supervisor.

      My course offered the best of both worlds: IT (including e-business and e-commerce systems) and management (including innovation management and strategic management). It was an amazing experience.”Bashir Attahiru Jega
