Course summary

Course Overview

Information technology is no longer a solely or primarily a technical issue. Not enough consultants, systems developers or managers understand the critical interplay between technology, organisations and change. This unique course gives you the skills to do just that.

Designing, developing, implementing and managing information technology requires a thorough understanding of the ways in which organisational change is managed. You will develop your knowledge of these key themes along with strategic impact, organisational implications and business value of information technology. You will be encouraged to think through the social and ethical dimensions relating to technology. You will also look at the role of consultancy, business analysis and the management of projects, and explore the current and future technological landscape.

The programme attracts high-calibre students across all backgrounds, countries and genders. We do not aim to produce IT managers or computing wizards. Instead we offer students an advanced grounding in key areas of IT and management. Our teaching combines academic rigour with business-relevant content thanks to close collaboration with industry partners. This includes unpacking theoretical frameworks in relation to real-life case studies.

Our teaching is research-led and taught by specialists. Guest industry speakers will introduce you to current challenges. You will also have the opportunity to tailor one module each term to your interests such as cyber security, e-business, e-marketing and human resource management.

In our 16 week-long company challenge, you will be asked to develop ideas regarding a specific issue, present a proposal and produce a white paper. This company research internship, with firms such as IBM and KPMG, often forms the basis of your dissertation. Alternatively, you can pursue a dissertation topic of your own choice

There is a gap in the marketplace for managing change through technology, so the skills you gain will be highly sought-after by employers. Many graduates pursue careers in technology management, management consultancy, change or project management, IT consulting or business analysis. They work across the world in start-ups through the prestigious multinationals. Others use this MSc as a springboard to their PhD.


With its combination of rigorous intellectual knowledge and practical focus on emerging themes and topics, ITMOC equips its graduates equally well for careers in general management or for roles that relate specifically to the development and management of information technology.

Graduates from the programme are employed as IT managers, consultants, project managers, systems analysts and general managers in a variety of private and public sector organisations across the world.

Fine-tuning your ideas of where you want to go next in your career – and how to get there – will be an important part of your year at Lancaster. To help with this, various activities are provided throughout the programme.
