Business Technology Consulting

The MSc Business Technology Consulting programme provides theoretical knowledge, practical methodologies and techniques via case studies and tutorials that will enable you to specify and design technology solutions for business managers and organisations.

The practical emphasis of our courses has been recognised by BCS (The Chartered Institute for IT), and stems from our research-informed and practice-orientated approach to information management, integrating business strategy and technology solutions.

You will learn about informatics, business systems, processes and architecture necessary to understand the digital business environment. You will also develop analysis, problem solving, teamwork and leadership skills necessary for creating effective business solutions.

By using practical technology consulting frameworks and methods throughout the programme, you will prepare to embark on a digital business technology consulting career.

A one week residential course at our beautiful Greenlands campus in Henley-on-Thames will enable you to experience our world-class executive training environment with other business executives and consultants.

A 10-12 week consulting project will allow you to apply your knowledge to real-life cases in a structured and systematic manner, with many projects involving work with and for consulting organisations.
