This course is ideal for those who are familiar with using technology and wish to develop the skills needed to apply various computing applications to environments such as education and business. The emphasis of this course is IT in a business and management context, and has been developed to extend practical and theoretical knowledge of business, management, and information communication systems. We acknowledge the dynamic nature of today's rapidly changing and fast moving business environment, and the need for business professionals to keep pace with rapid speed of change within the world of business computing systems. This course has recently been updated to ensure that the modules taught will aid graduates to gain a broad range of skills and knowledge to advance their careers or to gain suitable employment, especially within a business, computing, or educational ICT environment. It expands on existing knowledge and you will be exposed to a number of new business computing applications that could be used in a variety of business situations and organisations. The course is not aimed to be highly technical by nature; there are other foundation degrees available which explore the pure computing, hardware and networking areas in more detail, although you will gain a good awareness in these fields to help in a business context.
