About the MSc programme
The MSc Management of Information Systems and Digital Innovation (MISDI) studies digital innovation in business and government across the world. It is an intellectually rigorous, innovative, interdisciplinary programme that integrates established knowledge on the development and management of information systems with the critical study of emerging domains of digital innovation.
The internet and mobile technologies are drastically changing the ways we create and share information. Managers with the capability to capitalise on new digital developments, and manage the transformation of technological systems within organisations, are highly sought after in the job market. The MISDI programme will prepare you for key roles in the shaping of digital innovation and in the management of the business and social transformation that such innovation unleashes.
The programme 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 for understanding the processes of information systems and innovation and case studies for illustrating issues in particular instances of management and innovation practice.
