Get ahead with an IT Management for Business (ITMB) BSc Degree

It has never been so important to choose a career that is relevant to an industry and these days, having a degree alone is not enough to land a great career.

Statistics show that nearly one in ten graduates are unemployed six months after university. Don’t let yourself become part of a statistic and choose a degree that was developed with employers to gain the relevant skills and experience they are looking for in graduates.

If you want to develop in-demand technical skills and the wider business skills that employer’s value, then ITMB is the course for you.

The ITMB is more than just an ordinary degree course. In addition to the lectures and seminars that students expect, students also get extra support from a close network of employers including attendance at exclusive ITMB student and employer networking events, CV clinics and mock interview days, real life business projects and assessments, work placements and ‘guru lectures’ from senior executives and inspirational role models from some of the UK's most prestigious companies and successful start-ups.

The course is supported by nearly 80 employers and is currently being delivered at a number of universities across the UK.

What is ITMB?

The IT Management for Business degree (ITMB) was developed by the Sector Skills Council for IT and Business e-skills UK and a number of top employers such as British Airways, Fujitsu and IBM. It was developed to solve the problem that employers reported of graduates having the wrong mix of Technology and Business skills and since it was started in 2005, it has had a positive impact on its involved employers and students.

Why ITMB?

This course actually prepares you for ‘the real world’. We were taught how to lead teams, how to handle job interviews and were put in touch directly with HR teams at IT companies (in other words, the people who will give you a job!).” James Shields, ITMB graduate now at Microsoft

The ITMB was so much more than a degree; it was a whole community. For example, during my course I met the people who ended up interviewing me for a graduate job.Matt Long, ITMB graduate now at HP

It’s not just the employer contact and the real business environment experience that sets ITMB apart, it’s the practical skills that can instantly be put into practise that has given me the employability skills to secure a job.Corrina Hawkins, ITMB graduate now at Capgemini
