BSc (Hons) IT Management for Business


GCU is the first Scottish university to offer the Tech Industry Gold Information Technology Management for Business (ITMB) degree.

The Tech Partnership, working with the UK government and industry, established the ITMB degree in 2005 to meet the demand in the workplace for managers with a combination of both strong business management and technical computing skills. The programme was designed in consultation with major employers in this area including BT, Capgemini, CA Technologies, Cisco Systems, IBM, the Ministry of Justice and the NHS.

The course aims to provide students with a broad understanding of business-centred information systems and an awareness of the business models, needs and organisational structures which these systems support. Students study modules from across the computing and business subject areas. Employers are involved throughout the programme, taking part in guest lectures, career mentoring and networking events. Additionally students are encouraged to undertake industry placements.

The Tech Partnership community also provides opportunities for interaction with fellow students across the UK.
