Digital Innovation and Entrepreneurship (Full-Time, 2018 Entry)

 

What will I learn?

If you’re interested in becoming an entrepreneur or would like to work in more traditional careers in consulting and IT management, this programme will help you develop and implement new ideas and digital strategies in your organisation.

The course offers a broad foundation of digital innovation and entrepreneurial concepts, business practice and development. Modules are taught by WBS staff from the Information System and Management, and Entrepreneurship and Innovation groups, many of whom have experience in consulting or entrepreneurship. We will introduce you to key technologies to help you understand the managerial and organisational implications they can have in business. You’ll develop both conceptual knowledge and practical skills in digital innovation, and will learn how to use technology strategically in a business context, not just practical computing IT skills.

The final-year module Digital Innovation Project 2 allows you to apply what you have learnt throughout the course to an innovation project as the culmination of your studies. Guest lectures from IT and innovation-led companies will explain and illustrate the theory you’ve learned by showing how it works in practice.

Each year comprises core modules with opportunities to choose from a wide variety of elective modules offered by WBS and other departments across the University to tailor your studies. Second-year modules touch upon digital innovation in established organisations and in entrepreneurial contexts as well as some more traditional information systems topics. In your final year, you have more flexibility, with five core modules and four elective modules. You can choose your second and third-year electives from a variety of business and economics modules, and other subject areas such as a foreign language.

How will I learn?

The course is taught by WBS faculty, with active participation from leading external organisations. The teaching for the course will primarily be delivered through a mixture of lectures and seminars, where students will have on average 15 hours of contact time per week.

How will I be assessed?

You will be assessed through a combination of examinations and on-going assessments, which may include essays, research assignments, projects, case study analysis, class tests, presentations and group work.
