In the context of a global business environment, this programme is about how to deliver value and benefit to ourselves and our customers through the exploitation of innovation and technological change.
ITM is designed for graduates who aspire to a leadership position in high-tech, high-growth, globally operating companies. Typically students will have a background in IT, telecommunications, engineering or business management, but the programme is also open to highly motivated students from other disciplines.
What will this course provide?
This course gives an interdisciplinary perspective on the key issues facing global organisations. It is all about delivering value in the context of a global environment and exploiting technologies to deliver benefit to ourselves and our customers. As a student, you will gain a very broad skill set, which will enable you to manage the development, acquisition and operation of technology in a global, competitive environment. The programme aims to create flexible individuals who can analyse business opportunities, operationalise technologies, and innovate in ways of working. You will learn to evaluate a technology in terms of its potential, its market and the risks involved, and you’ll learn about managing a global workforce, how to implement and manage change and how to exploit innovation.
