Is the ITMB course a good and beneficial course to take? Would it be worse than taking a Computer Science degree? I love the theory side of computing and I am interested in the business and maths side of things however I do not like programming at all. How easy is it to find jobs with the ITMB degree and whats the pay ladder like?

What jobs exactly?

For software engineering or any similar derivative you'd be better off taking a course with more programming and problem solving, i.e. CS

hi, thanks for the reply, I do not want a job which revolves around programming/coding, more towards maths, business and computer theory side of things.

It's a good degree as it's accredited as Tech Industry Gold the industry accreditation for digital and tech higher education. You'll get to meet employers at events which take place twice a year. There's also the opportunity to attend Industry Insight Talks - talks delivered at unis by employers. The course covers tech, business and management, a combination of skills and knowledge that employers are looking for.

'computer theory side of things' is academia
'maths side of things' is data science, machine learning and quant finance
'business side of things' is product management, people management, technical consulting, enterprise architecting (all of which are significantly more difficult (or impossible for enterprise architecting) to get into as a graduate than soft eng or data science)

Thanks for the information, what types of job could I get into with the degree in ITMB?
Would there be a good enough pay ladder to climb?

Thanks

You will get to meet employers from a range of companies eg. Deloitte, IBM, CapGemini and many more. Have a look at tpdegrees.com for more information about where the degree can take you. There are also a lot of case studies available as well under the Class of 2019 and Class of 2018. There is an induction planned at each university where you can find out more.

you would be eligible to apply for grad schemes in any of the above careers I suggested (although the management ones tend to have very few grad schemes as they require experience)

would they be good enough? wrong question. would you be good enough? the answer to the latter question depends on a combination of your technical skills, qualifications and soft skills.

Every tech company is different and has different pay scales. You can look at the average salaries for different roles earned in the UK at glassdoor.co.uk

50% of Tech Industry Gold graduates earn at least £25k pa six months after graduation compared to 37% for Computer Science overall and 27% for all graduates. You can find out more at tpdegrees.com/results.

The ITMB is an industry accredited degree. As the ITMB covers all the practical aspects of the world of work you will develop relevant technical skills and those all important business and people skills required by industry

Hey there, I study ITMB at UWE and I am in my second year. ITMB is probably the best course you can take when it comes to finding jobs with the degree as the course is accredited by numerous employers such as Barclays, BT, Salesforce, Deloitte to name a few. There is a North and South event that is held each year where students can go and network with potential employers and gives you a really good way to interact with companies you want to work with.
The modules within the course differ with the university you chose to go with so the amount of programming you do may be different however, the degree allows you to step into different career paths that don't have to do with programming.
Hope this helps
