Masters Targets ICT in Business


Brunel University’s School of Information Systems, Computing and Mathematics is linking with insurance company AXA UK to develop a workplace Masters programme in Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in Business.

The programme lasts three years but is split into four six-month modules and a 12-month dissertation. Students attend the university for four one-week learning blocks. Throughout the rest of the course learning is situated in the workplace with regular site visits and video conferences with Brunel academics.

Dr. Mark Lycett, Deputy Head of Brunel University’s School of Information Systems, Computing and Mathematics, said: “Information and communication technologies are fundamental to the business environment, but their role in achieving sustainable competitive advantage requires smart thinking and understanding of the business if they are to be truly transformational. This course is designed to give IT professionals the skills they need to achieve this.”

Ian Pinnock, Group CIO at AXA UK, added: “The motivations for AXA UK’s involvement in the development of this course are two-fold: Firstly, we recognise the importance of embracing ICT not just to keep the lights on but to deliver real benefits in terms of efficiency, innovation and competitive advantage.

“Secondly, we want to take our thinking and capability to a new higher level. We need to develop our people along two tracks, leadership and technical. The MTech helps us in inspiring, motivating and developing the thinking ability of our staff.”
