The MBA is the prime management qualification for
managers. Designed for your success, the MBA creates distinctive
managers with a comprehensive knowledge of the latest business
practices.Managers, and even more so IT managers, have nowadays to deal with the interconnected business and technology worlds. While all these leaders usually have a deep background in information systems management, either acquired practically, or through previous tech-related studies, they are usually also accountable for leading a highly qualified team and overseeing key projects and assets. Long gone are the days when one could casually ignore business matters to focus on improving IT technologies and services. It is common knowledge that managers, be they in IT or not, who do not fully recognise and support their enterprise's business goals put their own job at risk. This is a key driver for managers, who want to gain exposure to how technology intertwines with business, seeking to gain an MBA. The MBA Information Technology answers this demand, providing students with the skills required to manage both IT systems and people, blending the established business knowledge of an MBA with specialised courses on Information Management and Internet of Things.
The MBA programmes benefit greatly from the internationality derived from recruiting students from across the globe, and drawing on tutors well qualified in their field.
