About this course

The MCompSc(Mgmt) program focuses on preparing ICT professionals with a Bachelor degree in Computer Science/Information Technology for the challenges of rapidly advancing ICT technologies. It provides a combination of the ICT, business, and management skills required by the ICT industry. The program can be used as a general upgrade of skills in ICT or as a skill upgrade in a specific ICT area, such as information systems, software engineering, distributed systems, networks, security of computing systems and other ICT areas. The further combination of the ICT, business, and management skills is currently a sine qua non requirement for candidates seeking employment in the ICT industry. The job market is changing; the demand for pure IT/CS jobs (software engineering, database management, network management, etc) is diminishing while the demand for IT professionals with good business and management skills is growing.
