Hey guys i need help real quick. I’m confused bw management and ITMB (at Manchester). I’m thinking of ITMB bc of more employer engagement and the fact that tech skills are in demand in all careers. A career that is just IT related would be like a backup for me but definitely not my first choice. I want to do something in business for sure. So should i go for ITMB keeping in mind my priorities and goals? Or is ITMB mostly just a tech course for tech careers ?

I applied for that course too in manchester and got rejected lol, keep in mind though that the course is very competitive at Manchester. I'd say just look at the modules and electives and see whether they suit ur liking, if so then you can try ITMB. But if you dont like the tech side, then go for business management

Thanks for the reply. Still really confused tho :/
My main concern is that everyone that I’ve heard talking about this course (ppl who are enrolled in it or people who plan to), all seem to be mainly IT focused and seem to want to build a career in tech and I don’t want that I don’t want something that’s very IT focused and some people even compare it to computer science.

Waste of time. You don't fall into a management position because of the course you did. That comes with actual commercial experience. With regards to IT/tech roles, I have never hired an engineer that did not have actual commercial experience, side projects, portfolio or an apprenticeship. In my experience and many recruiters and tech leads I've dealt with, tech related degrees are out of touch with the real world and do not translate very well into the workplace. In this industry, experience is what counts above anything else. Unless you're one of the lucky few to get into a graduate scheme. My degree in computer science had nothing to do with my role as a lead engineer, that only came with years of experience.
