Programme Overview

The usefulness of IS in contemporary organisations is reflected in the current trend of technology integration in public and private sector organisations. But this integration should be based on a systematic understanding of the relationships between information technology and organisations as well as the co-evolution of this relationship.
The MPhil MIS programme equips students with knowledge and skills to carry out original research, thinking independently, critically analyzing data, and disseminating knowledge through publication and teaching. The programme will present a balance between the organisational and technical themes that will equip students with knowledge on the theory and practice of information systems.
