Computer and Management Sciences Banner
Our partnership with Warwick Business School provides students with a flexible combination of computer science and business, making them attractive to employers who value technical skills and commercial awareness in their graduates.
Our Computer Science with Business Studies course is run jointly with the Warwick Business School, one of the leading business schools in Europe. You will spend two years studying Computer Science, followed by a year studying topics in Business. The course is taught from first principles, which means you do not need to have prior knowledge of computer science or programming before you arrive. Our only requirements are that you have a strong background in mathematics and the desire to succeed - our commitment to teaching excellence and stimulating academic community will do the rest.

Course Content

The course emphasises the role of technology in the modern business environment, enabling our graduates to appreciate and utilise technology in meeting real-world business goals. You will acquire technical skills in software engineering and system design, as well as an understanding of how these impact organisations. Software engineering projects conducted throughout your degree are taught in conjunction with industry professionals and give you the opportunity to test your skills against real-world problems. Alongside a range of technical skills, you will develop a range of industrially relevant skills, including those in communication, planning and management.
