Overview

Virtually all organisations use IT as part of their operation. However, they seldom use it to its full advantage. This course will develop your IT capabilities and business awareness so that you are able to help firms realise their full potential when it comes to IT. You will learn how to analyse existing systems, seek new ones and devise solutions that will be an advantage to any business.

You will gain an in-depth understanding of business concepts, databases, systems analysis and design, web design, IT technology strategies and information analysis alongside an awareness of ethical business practice. Practical lab-based work, team projects and placement opportunities will allow you to practise your skills.

This course offers the opportunity to take a ‘sandwich’ year – a year of paid employment in industry which will build your skills and experience. This is usually taken between the second and third year of your degree, typically making your course four years in total. Students who choose the sandwich route find it helps with both their studies and getting a job after graduation. It can build your confidence, contacts, and of course your CV. Leeds Beckett advertise lots of placement opportunities and provide support in helping you find the right placement for you.

This course will provide you with an extensive and well tested grounding in information systems, ICT and business. You will examine business strategy case studies from blue chip companies and contribute to producing critical business decisions fit for implementation in similar organisations.

You will develop client databases to suit business needs, either individually or in a team, and will critically evaluate the justification and need for IT systems within these organisations.

We understand that full-time study does not suit everyone. That’s why we offer courses which give you the opportunity to decide where, when and how you can get involved in learning. Studying a distance learning course offers the convenience and flexibility to make education work for you. Whether you’d like to fit your studies around childcare, develop your skills while working or, quite simply, want to learn from the comfort of your own home, we can help you gain a qualification at a time and pace that suits your lifestyle.

Like our students on campus, you will have the same excellent teaching and learning resources, however you’ll find these online instead of in a lecture theatre. Not only are all the modules taught online, but you will also have access to an online community and more than 140,000 books and journals in our online library.
