About this course

This UK master’s degree in digital strategy and information systems will teach you methods to process business knowledge and use information systems. These skills are in demand to help organisations improve their business and reach their operational goals. MSc Digital Strategy and Information Systems explores recent trends and topics, taught by leaders in the field.

To be competitive in today's digital economy, businesses need to develop a digital strategy. A digital strategy can help organisations manage a range of information systems, organisational resources and analytics capabilities to:

  • tap into new sources of data, such as ‘big data’
  • produce new insights about their customers or business processes
  • design processes and platforms that allow them to share this knowledge among employees

Information systems are the technology-based processes organisations use to create, gather, process, store, use and share management information and organisational knowledge.

This Digital Strategy and Information Systems MSc will give you in-depth knowledge of the effective development, use and management of information systems in businesses and social organisations.

You’ll learn about the theory and practice of digital strategy and information systems, and examine the technological, managerial and social aspects of the subject.

You’ll learn from academics who underpin their teaching with specialist research and industry knowledge. You’ll be encouraged to explore key theories in practical tasks to improve your analysis, design and information systems skills. These are vital in a competitive job market.
