Programme overview

The Masters in Management of Information Systems and Digital Innovation (MISDI) studies digital innovation in business and government across the world. The internet and mobile technologies are changing drastically the ways we create and share information and open opportunities for new business models, new forms of governance, and new ways for public engagement. This MSc prepares students for leadership roles in the shaping of digital innovation and in the management of the business and social transformation that such innovation unleashes.

It is an intellectually rigorous, innovative, inter-disciplinary programme that integrates established knowledge on the development and management of information systems with the critical study of emerging domains of digital innovation, such as cloud computing, social networking, and mobile technologies.

It involves research led, practice relevant teaching. Our learning approach places emphasis on theory and critical discussion of academic literature from across a range of scientific fields. We include social theories and frameworks for understanding the processes of information systems and innovation and case studies for illustrating issues in particular instances of management and innovation practice.

The practice of innovation requires understanding of the social, managerial and economic context within which technology and organisations are constructed and managed. Our learning approach places emphasis on the critical discussion of academic literature from across a range of scientific fields. We include theories and frameworks for understanding the processes of information systems and innovation and case studies for illustrating issues in particular instances of management and innovation practice.
