Course description

The Information Technology Management for Business (ITMB) course has been designed in partnership with some of the world's leading employers to prepare students for a successful career in IT and is a variation of the Department's Computing and Management degree. The degree covers a vibrant mix of transferable skills and knowledge for students who want exciting and challenging management or professional careers designing, developing and implementing technology solutions for businesses. The ITMB course was designed to offer an insight into the real world of IT and allows students to: learn the people and project management skills required to be a successful IT professional in any sector; evaluate and understand technology and its role within business; gain practical experience working on authentic business challenges; establish an unrivalled platform for launching a career in the knowledge economy. The course enables students to gain practical experience working on real world business challenges and is taught in conjunction with the School of Business and Economics, providing experienced teaching and support. The course is supported by a partnership of over 1000 leading industry employers including BA, BBC, BT, The Cabinet Office, Cisco, Deloitte, Ford, Fujitsu, HP, IBM, ITV, LogicaCMG, The Met Office, Morgan Stanley, Norwich Union, Royal Bank of Scotland, Sainsbury’s, Symantec and Unilever. ITMB students have the opportunity to attend our regular Industry Insight Lecture Series, delivered by leading companies. ITMB students are also able to take part in the yearly Tech Partnership event, attended by over 200 students from across the country, and over 50 companies each year. The Tech Partnership, the current accreditation body for the ITMB degree scheme, will cease operations in 2018. Negotiations between the Tech Partnership and a number of other institutions are underway to find a new accreditation body to take over the ITMB degree scheme nationwide. Regardless of the outcome of the current negotiations we will offer an equivalent programme going forwards. For ITMB at Loughborough this may require modifications to content and/or degree scheme title in the future.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
Information systems courses cover a range of areas, including information design, modelling and the finance industry. How well graduates did made a particular difference in 2015 — computing graduates with good grades were much less likely to be out of work after six months. Most students do get jobs, though, and starting salaries are good — particularly in London, and that’s where over a quarter of graduates started work last year. This is also a good degree to take if you want to follow a technical role in the finance or advertising industry. Many jobs for this degree were found in the larger cities last year and opportunities may be more limited outside those areas.
