These skills are in demand to help organisations improve their business and reach their operational goals. MSc Digital Strategy and Information Systems explores recent trends and topics, taught by leaders in the field.

To be competitive in today's digital economy, businesses need to develop a digital strategy. A digital strategy can help organisations manage a range of information systems, organisational resources and analytics capabilities to:
