Course Introduction

The Business Intelligence and Social Media MScis a new multi-disciplinary course which explores developments in technology for businesses such as social media, business intelligence, and mobile and cloud services. There is a worldwide shortage of qualified managers with the skills needed for new jobs being created in this area, particularly in the emerging economies. Companies that are actively seeking candidates include tech sector businesses, but also banking, insurance, retail and education. In fact, it?s expected that virtually all business sectors will need to address big data and will need skilled people to manage development. You will learn about the social-based technologies at play in today?s organisations and their ability to enable communications as well as transform operations. Developing sound knowledge and understanding of digital business practices, you will learn the importance of data, information, and mass communication technologies to business. This course is ideal for practitioners seeking a more commercially relevant and tech industry-oriented master?s qualification rather than an MBA.
