Do you want to understand, design and manage digital solutions for future business? You may be considering a career in technology management for a large organisation or a small start-up, want to become a consultant helping organisations harness technology, or perhaps you’re interested in starting your own business.

The course was created and developed by a digital entrepreneur with 20 years of experience in digital innovation. At Warwick Business School, you will be taught by recognised academics, many of whom have experience in consulting or entrepreneurship. The teaching will be complemented by visits from senior professionals from industry, in particular IT and innovation-related specialists who will explain how theory works in practice, through real case studies and experiences.

Year 1 consists of 7 core and 1 optional module. Year 2 consists of 6 core and 2 optional modules and Year 3 consists of 6 core (including the Digital Innovation Project worth 30 CATS) and 2 optional modules.

You will learn in a variety of ways – primarily through a mixture of lectures, seminars, workshops and online learning.

Contact hours

This varies by year but you will have approximately 15 hours per week of class time, plus student support and feedback hours.

Class size

Class sizes vary by module: there can be up to 500 students in lectures (mainly year 1) and then around 25 in seminars. Some electives are much smaller.

You will be assessed through a combination of end of year examinations and on-going assessments, which may include essays, research assignments, projects, case study analysis, class tests, presentations and group work. The final degree classification is determined by your second and final year marks and each contributes 50%.
