A Masters course to prepare tomorrow's chief information officers for the technological, commercial and managerial challenges ahead of them will launch this September, at the Centre for Information Leadership, part of City University in London.

According to the director of the centre, David Chan, the course is "looking for people who want to be information leaders", in roles including chief information officer, director of business transformation, director of programmes and chief librarian.

The Masters in Information Leadership (MIL) course has been designed for professionals — including tech workers in the financial, retail or public sectors — with at least three to five years' experience in business-facing IT management or consultancy roles.

  • Interesting - but not from an equality or diversity perspective

    This looks really good - however I strongly disagree with the entry requirements to the course. I am sure that OFQUAL would have some concerns about the equality and diversity issues of their somewhat restricted access to the course. I think the last group of people who would benefit from this course are people who have already established themselves in IT and consultancy, otherwise it becomes a rather clique-y group of in-house mutual appreciation.
