Honours OR Postgraduate Diploma in Management in Information Systems (Part-Time)

Thinking about further study but not sure whether it is for you? The occupational marketplace is more competitive than ever before, and it is important to have a career strategy in place to help you gain the edge. A formal postgraduate qualification is a powerful differentiator and you can now earn this sought-after advantage part-time.

Gain industry-aligned skills and expertise for immediate application as you work to advance your career path in this dynamic area.

We offer an Honours or Postgraduate Diploma in Management in Information Systems with four specialisations, listed below.

  1. Information Systems Management
  2. Computer Forensics (Not offered in 2021)
  3. Enterprise Systems and Business Process Management
  4. Business Analysis and Systems Analysis
  5. Cybersecurity

These specialisations are completed over two years, part-time.

These programmes are aimed at students currently employed in the Information Systems or Information Technology fields. Applicants need a minimum of a three-year undergraduate degree (NQF level 7) from any IS or cognate discipline, and at least three years’ relevant IT working experience. We will however, consider applicants with no formal qualifications, using Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) as criterion for admission. All candidates are evaluated on a competitive basis and a limited number of places are offered.

In the first year of part-time study, students need to complete the coursework in one of the following four streams:

  • Information Systems Management
  • Computer Forensics (Not offered in 2021)
  • Enterprise Systems and Business Process Management
  • Business Analysis and Systems Analysis
  • Cybersecurity

In the second year, once the selected coursework is completed, students based on interest and proven ability can either complete a research project and qualify for an Honours degree, or complete a work-related Information Systems project to qualify for the postgraduate diploma.

Relevant individual course fees are available in the Fees handbook.
