Digital Business - University of Northampton

BSc Digital Business, is a direct response to the requirements from industry, where there is a shortage of graduates with skills aligned to the ever-increasing opportunities in digital businesses.

You will develop skills related to some of the business functions in a digital business model e.g. digital marketing and digital financial accounting. You will gain skills and expertise in understanding key business concepts applied within a digital environment. You will study some of the emerging topics such as blockchains and FinTech. The programme includes a strong emphasis on information systems analysis and management which are the underlying areas for designing and running a digital business. You will become familiar with the holistic supply chain of a digital business model. The ethical and legal issues, and cyber security management are other areas that you will explore. The programme focuses on three themes which will run across the three years of study: 1- Information management, e-commerce, e-supply chain, and information systems strategy 2- Digital marketing, content creation, insights and entrepreneurship in a digital business context 3- Digital financial reporting and accounting for a digital business.
