MSc/PgDip/PgCert Managing Innovation and Information Technology

Managing Innovation and Information Technology (MIIT) is a multidisciplinary postgraduate degree, designed to help create hybrid managers with the skills to take advantage of the latest developments in information systems and technology.

Suitable for graduates or professionals with a background in computer science or business, MIIT not only explores information systems but helps you to develop essential leadership, problem-solving and strategic skills.

Whether you are planning a career in the growing digital economy, leading on digital transformation projects or even starting your own business, MIIT will develop you as a leader and as a creative thinker.

The programme is research-informed and delivered by academics from the University’s active Centre for Digital Business. Through regular visits from industry speakers, the Industry Collaboration Project and the chance to take part in University entrepreneurship projects and competitions, you’ll gain experience and an insight into Greater Manchester’s growing tech scene.

The digital skills gap is an obstacle for businesses regardless of size or sector; by focusing on real-world applications of emerging technologies and the development of practical skills, you’ll graduate with the credentials and experience that employers are looking for.

You will:

  • Develop your managerial and technical skills
  • Put learning into practice through the Industry Collaboration Project
  • Explore emerging technologies and business models


The University of Salford grew out of the institutes of the late 19th century that provided a talented, technically proficient and professional workforce to support the UK’s rapidly growing industries. In the 21st century, this still holds strong. Whilst industry has changed significantly, the need for industry-focused education is equally relevant today.

We teach the skills that employers need and as a result, our graduates enjoy excellent international career prospects.

The curriculum across our postgraduate courses balances academic teaching and professional experience. Our industry partners give us their input into the curriculum so that the teaching reflects industry’s current and future needs and you develop the skills that employers want. The Industry Collaboration Project, which forms the final third of your study, is designed to give you real-world experience so you can apply the theory you have learned.

Students will also exit with PGDip and PGCert awards.
