MSc Information Systems Management

Sheffield University Management School, Faculty of Social Sciences

Triple Crown accreditation means we meet the high standards of three of the world’s most prestigious accreditation bodies: AMBA, EQUIS and AACSB. This puts us in the top one per cent of business schools worldwide.

I was attracted by the small class sizes and combination of the interactive teaching programme and research project within an organisation to provide real-world work experience.

IT and information systems drive and control organisations. This course gives you a grounding in management practices and develops your skills so you can play a key role in the design, implementation and development of information systems.

You can apply to base your dissertation on a project which you would work on with an external organisation. Recent projects include working with a national company to develop a prescriptive method for qualifying risks and quantifying the value added by advanced service systems for process packaging equipment.
