Henley Business School offers masters course with Capgemini

New course will improve business understanding of tech graduates

Henley Business School's Informatics Research Centre, has launched a new Masters course covering how business uses technology.

The Business School, at the University of Reading, will be offering the Business Technology Consulting M.Sc. in partnership with Capgemini, to applicants with industry experience as well as graduates.

The course will be based on a system that Capgemini currently uses to develop skilled business technology consultants. The 12-month programme is designed to provide graduates with practical knowledge and a deeper understanding of business and its use of technology, rather than focusing on the technologies themselves.

Henley Business School, said: "Graduates leave education with a strong understanding of the technology from an academic perspective, but traditionally their understanding of the intricacies of business is often non-existent."

Graduates will have access to consulting frameworks, case studies and real-life project-based assignments managed by a network of mentors. The course also includes a week-long module at the Capgemini University in Paris.

The course is limited to a maximum 20 graduates, and is set to start in October.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
