Programme updated and renamed for September 2018 entryThis programme (previously called Information Systems Management) has recently been through our regular programme review; this ensures it addresses the current and future needs of students and employers. Applications are now open for our September entry.
In how we communicate, behave and conduct business; it is hard to ignore how the world is rapidly changing around us. The question is, have you got the skills to succeed in this ever changing digital landscape? Developed in response to a shortage of digital skills identified both nationally and globally, our master’s in Digital Business has been designed to provide you with key practical skills for the current marketplace, including problem solving, strategic planning and critical thinking.
You will be taught by a team of internationally recognised experts based in the award winning Centre for Digital Business at Salford Business School and you will look at the technologies driving successful organisations and the opportunities they give for business development.
You will consider a wide range of business areas touched by technological developments including autonomous delivery vehicles, new forms of currency, ambient beacons and sensing technologies as well as increasingly customised workplace and social experiences. We have an excellent track record of bringing together students and digital business owners to solve business problems and for work-based teaching or live projects.
The programme takes advantage of Salford’s digital setting at MediaCityUK, acknowledged nationally and internationally as a leading digital region.
The teachers are really good. Whenever I was confused about anything or needed more explanation, they were always there to help me.Fatima Lawal, MSc Digital Business (previously called Information Systems Management), 2016-17
