Course summary

OVERVIEW Industry 4.0 – technologies like AI and robotics – is disrupting everything. Now there’s such a huge amount of data available, businesses are striving to make the most of it to get a competitive advantage. But to make better decisions and improve their operations, organisations need skilled professionals in these new technologies. Our BSc (Hons) Business Technology gives you the skills to identify business challenges, find technological solutions, manage technology projects and services, and analyse business data. This is an area that’s always evolving, so we’ll also give you the tools to adapt to new ideas and new ways of working. Discover your talents With a wide range of topics, and the choice of optional units in other areas, you can really explore your interests. Business analysis, big data, app development, e-commerce – whatever you want to specialise in, you’ll have the chance to develop a strong knowledge base. As well as vital business skills, you’ll also learn about some of the biggest technologies of today. Cloud computing with AWS, enterprise resource planning with SAP, programming languages, and databases all feature on the course. Develop in areas that are in demand Many organisations are struggling to make the most of digital technology. They know it can transform their business, but they don’t know how. We designed this programme so you can support and have the potential to eventually lead them through the digitisation process. There is also opportunity to specialise in routes with more emphasis on technology development and data analytics, which continues to be in high demand in organisations. Choose a placement or study abroad The course offers real flexibility as you will enrol on the three-year course and then decide if a placement or overseas study is right for you once you have started your studies. You don’t have to decide now. If you opt to undertake a placement or study abroad your course will normally be four years full-time. FEATURES AND BENEFITS
