Business in Technology

Ulster University - Belfast

Business in Technology

The first of its kind in the UK, this course has been created to meet the increasing demand for technology professionals to lead, influence and develop strategies for transformation and organisational growth.

The course is ideal for those experienced in technology or techled project roles who want to progress their careers in senior management and leadership.

Co-designed with industry, we have created a relevant and practical course to provide you with the skills employers are looking for. Built around a triangle of business understanding, human insights, and technology, the course offers three discrete awards: PGCert Business Analysis and Consulting; PGDip Transformation Management and Leadership; and MSc Business in Technology.

The course uses a mix of applied theory, practical teaching and real-world project-based learning to develop the business acumen and leadership skills required to manage and lead transformation and sustainable change. This course encourages collaboration providing the opportunity to explore ideas, network, and learn with like-minded people.
