HP launches IT services management degree

Part-time course for IT professionals or anyone after a career change

HP has partnered with Bucks New University to launch a new foundation degree in IT services management.

The two-year, part-time, work-based qualification aims to help develop IT professionals' existing skills, or anyone looking for a career change can also apply for the course.

It covers the themes of personal and professional development, technology and business.

The course will be taught through flexible learning at the university's High Wycombe location and at HP's Bracknell site.

Dr Kevin Maher, principal lecturer of new media and technologies at Bucks New University, said: "People working in IT services management are concerned with the effective management of IT systems for providing quality services to clients.

"This course provides students with the opportunities and insights that will ensure they develop the technical and business skills to help them secure long-term employment."

HP has previously developed IT courses with the University of the West of England and De Montfort University.

More information about the course can be found by calling 0800 0565 660, emailing or at Admissions for the course will start in February.

From new extortion schemes, outside threats and rising cyber attacks, the art of securing the enterprise has seldom been so complex or challenging.

In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers. In sizing up the security spectrum, this Reseller News roundtable - in association with F5 Networks, Kaspersky Lab, Tech Data, Sophos and SonicWall - assessed where the channel sweet spot is within the New Zealand channel.
