Virtually all organisations use IT as part of their operation. However, they seldom use it to its full advantage. This course will develop your IT capabilities and business awareness so that you are able to help firms realise their full potential when it comes to IT. You will learn how to analyse existing systems, seek new ones and devise solutions that will be an advantage to any business.

You will gain an in-depth understanding of business concepts, databases, systems analysis and design, web design, IT technology strategies and information analysis alongside an awareness of ethical business practice. Practical lab-based work, team projects and placement opportunities will allow you to practise your skills.

This course offers the opportunity to take a ‘sandwich’ year – a year of paid employment in industry which will build your skills and experience. This is usually taken between the second and third year of your degree, typically making your course four years in total. Students who choose the sandwich route find it helps with both their studies and getting a job after graduation. It can build your confidence, contacts, and of course your CV. Leeds Beckett advertise lots of placement opportunities and provide support in helping you find the right placement for you.
