Qualifications in Oracle and Sterling Software products are being added to the options in IT MSc courses offered by Sheffield Hallam University.
The university already runs an IT and management MSc course including a qualification in SAP business software,...
and last month it launched an MSc in business intelligence with SAS Institute, a supplier of business data analysis software.
Its School of Computing and Management Sciences is now adding Oracle and Sterling Software options and packaging all four offerings as the career MSc.com programme.
Each course will include study at the university, teaching by product suppliers, and a major project - typically conducted by the student on a year's work placement scheme.
"By working with the university we are developing an integrated academic and professional programme that brings the right e-business skills combination - technical prowess and business acumen - to the workplace in a practical way," says Stuart Turner, a vice-president of Oracle UK.
Sterling Software director Simon Reynolds adds: "Graduates will enter the workforce with a more specialised set of skills, thus decreasing their training time and increasing the quality and speed of their work."
Course fees start at £9,000.
