OVERVIEW Technology is disrupting almost every area of business and the COVID-19 pandemic has only served to accelerate the change. As technology has increasingly become part of every business, data has become the new oil and businesses are striving to make the most of it in order to gain a competitive and lasting advantage. But technology does not just happen on its own; it needs professionals to design, implement and manage technology systems. Our BSc (Hons) Business Technology degree gives you the skills needed in a modern business environment. You’ll learn to identify business challenges, find technological solutions, manage technology projects and services, and analyse business data. This is an area that’s constantly evolving, so we’ll 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, project management – whatever you want to specialise in, you’ll have the chance to develop a strong knowledge base. As well as vital business skills such as global strategy and technology management, 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 have the potential to support and eventually lead them through the digital transformation process. There is also opportunity to specialise in routes with more emphasis on technology development, data analytics, project management and social media marketing, all of which continue 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
