Subject

Business information technology

Much of today's business now operates in a dynamic, fast-paced and technologically advanced environment. It is hard to imagine a world where business processes and financial transactions are not managed by technology. Companies require individuals who can bridge the gap between business management and technology. This degree aims to give students a sound knowledge of information technology fundamentals, and their application in business, and a firm foundation in management to address a growing need for globally ready leaders in business technology. The School has links with over 500 IT companies both here and abroad. We benefit from the fact that there are more software companies located in Northern Ireland than in any other part of the UK, outside of London. This benefits our students on many levels - from industrial input to the content of our degree, through to year-long and summer placements, as well as activities such as competitions organised by the companies.
