This Masters programme will expose students to the leading edge tool for assessing and managing IT, the IT-CMF. This is the world’s most comprehensive IT Management framework and has been developed through years of research with leading global companies. This course differs from many other IT programmes because of its leading edge industry inputs and also because it sets IT Management in the context of the business environment. This is not a programme to develop stand-alone technical IT specialists. This course develops the capacity for participants to understand how IT operates both as a function and as a key interrelated resource within an organisational context. This involves understanding people, work processes, relationships, organisation structures, organisation strategies, and how all of these impact on and are impacted by Information Technology.
