The Master of Commerce (MCom) degree (by Coursework) in Information Systems is an intensive academic programme including both research and coursework components. Through coursework in the first year, candidates learn about the latest trends in the information systems environment, issues in IS management and advances in IS research. Students are introduced to the research process in the early stages of the course in order to begin to formulate a research topic, and the second year of the course entails the student completing a research report under Faculty supervision. The research year brings students into close contact with Faculty as we jointly explore opportunities and problems in the use, development, management and impacts of information systems on individuals, organisations and society. The programme has been carefully crafted to balance industry relevance with academic rigour. Students will study topics in research methodology, explore advances in research areas such as IT adoption and IS management, and gain exposure to contemporary issues in IS practice.
