About this course

To be competitive in today's digital economy, businesses need to develop a digital strategy. A digital strategy can help organisations effectively manage an ever-increasing range of information systems and 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

Central to all of this are information systems, i.e., the means or processes by which people and organisations, utilising technologies, create, process, store, use and share management information and organisational knowledge.

The MSc Digital Strategy and Information Systems (DSIS) will enable you to develop 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.
