      This degree course provides an excellent preparation for a challenging and rewarding career, offering a high level of knowledge and practical skills in both Information Technology (IT) and management. Graduates possessing these skills are highly sought after in industry.
      The course is approximately evenly divided between IT and management subjects and is taught in conjunction with the School of Business and Economics, providing experienced teaching and support.
      Computing and Management and Information Technology Management for Business (ITMB) are very similar with most taught modules being common to the two courses.
      The essential difference is that the ITMB course was specified and is endorsed by the companies of the Tech Partnership. The strength of the Computing and Management course however is that it allows for more flexibility when choosing the project in Year 3/4.
