The BSc Computing for Business aims to produce Graduate Software Developers who specialise in managing software development for business.  We focus on the design, construction and application of computing systems to meet the requirements of business organisations.

The Aston University Computing for Business programme is one of only 13 in the UK to be endorsed as an ITMB programme by the E-skills council, giving our students access to top companies, projects and graduate opportunities. Aston also offers an optional integrated placement year.

You will extend your knowledge beynd the traditional business use of IT and be fully up to speed with new developments with the internet, e-business and distributed computing/multimedia systems.

Subject Guide & Modules:

This programme has two main study themes: the methods of computing and how businesses operate and exploit computing effectively.  The core of this programme is the design and construction of systems to inform management decision-making and facilitate business activity. 

Computing for Business is approximately two thirds computing and one third business with considerable emphasis given to the integration of the two subjects. 

Since students join the programme from a variety of different backgrounds, year one brings everyone to the same level of knowledge.  The principles of computer programme design and business organisation provide a firm grounding for the remaining two years of the programme.  A wide range of options in the final year allow you to select specialised topics of particular interest to your chosen career.
