Aims/Description: This module features recorded Industry Lectures from individuals in prominent positions ('gurus') in the IT industry, who talk on their working practices and issues from both a managerial and technical perspective. A library of these is provided as part of the Tech Partnership Information Technology for Management and Business (ITMB) programme, and further lectures will be added during the year. Students will participate in seminars in which the content of the lectures will be critically discussed and evaluated. Students will summarise each lecture and complete an essay on a topic related to the lectures.
