CAREER/FURTHER STUDY OPPORTUNITIES

Career:

We anticipate that when you complete your degree you will possess the
ability to become a positive change agent in any organisation and an
obvious champion for the added value of a dynamic and innovative
organisational culture. You will also have had extensive and
continuous opportunity for reflective and critical evaluation of your
capability as a team worker and leader. The course may also equip you
to start your own business or expand the business you are in.

The course has professional and personal development fully embedded
throughout and you will develop skills in risk management and
strategic thinking and analysis that you can apply to your own career.
This will enable you to enhance your employability skills, reflect on
the skills and knowledge you may need to accelerate your career and
bring value to your current and future employment. When coupled with
the learning from analysing the impact of new and emerging
technologies and the knowledge of securing business – critical data,
you will be in a very powerful position to deliver a strong strategic
vision that is coherent and rigorous, with minimum risk. This relates
to a key theme in the Education Strategy that offers you the
opportunity to participate in a curriculum that is focused on
employability and that enables all students to maximise their
opportunities.

During the course you will have extensive networking opportunities
within the wider course team as well as the University. You can talk
through career and further development opportunities with your tutor
as well as your peers and wider circle. Whatever you decide to do you
will have a toolkit of knowledge and capabilities developed from the
course that will support and enable you.

Further study:

Decisions relating to further study can be made during or after the
course and you would be encouraged to keep in touch particularly by
attendance at Creativity Clubs and the opportunities provided by the
Knowledge Network. We will be running a series of Alumni events and
you will be invited to these which will offer the opportunity for
further study and contact with the University.

The tutors will always be there as a source of advice and help should
you want to progress your development further. The course is aimed at
self-directed and motivated individuals and it is unlikely you will
sit still. Alumni will be particularly welcome to input into
subsequent deliveries of the MBA IT. Students may wish to continue to
a DBA or PhD after some time.
