Information systems

This course will equip you with the skills to apply information systems to the problems encountered in management. It covers the design, implementation and operation of information systems together with the practice and theory of management.

Accredited by the British Computer Society, this course provides an opportunity to gain theoretical knowledge and practical skills in both computing and management, striking a balance between the underlying theories and the current techniques relevant to the marketplace.

The programme aims to produce graduates who, with appropriate experience, will become hybrid managers (ie managers/information systems analysts/computer scientists), well versed in the tools, techniques, approaches and philosophies necessary for the successful introduction of complex information and communication technologies in today's fast-changing world.

Highlights

- The Department of Computer Science and Information Systems at Birkbeck is one of the longest-established computing departments in the UK; we will be celebrating our 62nd anniversary in 2019. We provide a stimulating teaching and research environment for both part-time and full-time students.

- In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF), more than 75% of our research outputs in Computer Science were ranked world-leading or internationally excellent.
