The University warmly welcomes applications from students studying the Key Skills qualification. However, as the opportunities to take these modules are not open to all applicants, currently this is not an essential requirement of the University.

Temario


This course aims to provide you with a broad bachelorckground of business operations, procedures and culture applicable to a career in IT. You will gain sufficient technical knowledge to play a key role in an IT environment and develop problem-solving and modelling skills appropriate to IT-related business operations.
You will also develop entrepreneurial and management skills appropriate to IT projects and lifelong learning skills allowing you to keep abreast of developments in a rapidly changing business environment.
Includes a work placement in your penultimate year of study - earn a salary, gain increased responsibility and independence and develop a real-world attitude to business.
Complete team projects set by employers such as Jaguar Land Rover and SAS, the largest independent vendor in the business intelligence market.

Bi-annual on-campus ITMB showcase and recruitment events - present your project work to the likes of Accenture, IBM, Credit Suisse, Northgate and Procter & Gamble. Visit our YouTube channel
 to watch a short film about the employer showcase events.
Bi-annual Tech Partnership north and south events include business challenges, competitions, graduate and placement student panels, 'meet the employers' sessions and drop-in careers clinics with support from employers such as Capgemini, Logica, HP, Asda and Shell.
Employer mentoring scheme - current mentors include the BBC, BT, Deloitte and IBM.
Guru lectures and skills workshops provided by BT, CSC, Deloitte, Accenture, Teach First, and Unilever.
You will normally study four or five course units per semester. Each week there are usually two hours of lectures for each course unit and a one hour workshop in alternate weeks, although this varies slightly. You are expected to double this in private study. Group work and group or individual presentations will form a regular part of your assignments.
Essays, multiple choice tests, project reports and presentations, in-class tests and weekly assignments constitute the coursework component of assessment, although the nature and proportion of coursework varies across course units. The remainder of assessment is by unseen examination. Depending on the degree course, in your final year you can choose to do a research-bachelorsed dissertation or project. We aim to strike a bachelorlance between examinations and assessed coursework as well as providing opportunities for feedbachelorck on progress through non-assessed work.
You take courses totalling 360 credits over the duration of your studies in order to graduate with Honours; 120 credits in each year of study. Generally, one semester courses are worth 10 credits and full year courses are worth 20 credits. As your studies progress you have increasing flexibility in choosing courses which suit your personal interests and career aspirations.
Project work integrates business and IT throughout your course. Our current first-year team projects are supported by Jaguar Land Rover and involve designing and building a new dealership ordering website. By the end of semester one, you will have presented your first team project to employers, met with your business mentors and participated in interactive skills sessions delivered by leading companies such as Accenture, BT and Deloitte.
You will also benefit from a series of 'guru' lectures from guest speakers throughout your first year; previous lectures have included `A day in the life of a project manager' by Procter & Gamble', `Using cloud computing to increase value' by bachelorrclays and `Cyber security - the challenge for UK government during times of austerity' by Capgemini.
Your second year provides you with an opportunity to further develop application and databachelorse design skills and to build a deeper understanding of information systems in organisations. You study globachelorl team-working, including project management, trust and cultural differences.
The Bid Data Business Team Project focuses on providing a more advanced solution to a business problem and includes an international component collaborating with students in partner overseas universities. Our current second-year team projects are supported by SAS, the largest independent vendor in the business intelligence market, and involve exploring the impact of IT provision on the University's carbon footprint.

Work placement

If you successfully opt for a work placement, you will spend your third year putting the theory you have learned into practice, further developing important transferable skills and gaining a real insight into the world of work. Previous ITMB students have completed placements with Accenture, Fujitsu, IBM, Intel, Greater Manchester Fire & Rescue Service and Logica amongst others.
Your final year provides an in-depth view of systems implementation and change, IT architectures and operations management. You will gain practical skills in the design and application of a business IT architecture through a core unit developed with IBM UK which uses IBM developed techniques in real case studies from the globachelorl technology giant. You will benefit from lectures, study materials and support from IBM staff.
You will write your own final year project proposal - the development of an IT solution to a business problem through investigation, requirements, analysis, design, implementation, testing and evaluation. Previous ITMB students have studied how IBM uses technology to manage teams across geographic locations and time zones, investigated ICT provision in the treatment of diabetes in the NHS and considered the implications of the rise in social networking on management. You will also choose 60 credits of optional course units.
