An Evaluation On E Skills For The Imb Program

2514 words - 11 pages

The purpose of this assignment is to evaluate the e-skills provision for the IMB programme, a course that I am currently enrolled on at University College London. When evaluating the e-skills provision for our course I shall discuss factors such as what aspects are effective and what are not, what needs be changed to make things more effective and my personal involvement in a particular activities and if they benefited me in any sense. Since I am now in my third year of the course, I feel like I can comment reflectively and critically on this topic and have a variety of different viewpoints that I shall evaluate, some of which are specific to my personal career plans and some of which where I am attempting to empathise with some of my fellow course members views, which I understand could be different to mine.

I will start by briefly evaluating my reasons behind why I chose the course to be my number one choice in my UCAS application in the first place and later on I shall analyse whether my expectations for the course had been fulfilled or not. Going back to when I was compiling my UCAS application, what appealed to me most about the Information Management for Business (IMB) course was how the course was being developed by e-skills in close collaboration with some of the worlds largest and most successful companies such as ‘British Airways, BT, Computer Associates, Ford, Fujitsu, HP, IBM, Morgan Stanley, Aviva, Pricewaterhouse Coopers, Procter & Gamble, Capgemini, Accenture and Unilever’. This fact made me optimistic in my outlook of finding a desirable job upon graduating, since I thought I could ultimately end up working at one of those companies in the future. In addition to this, the fact that the course had the focus of developing tech savvy graduates, which are in short supply in the UK, was also an attraction as it meant that the employment rate and starting salary were both higher than the UK average. These were my primary reasons for choosing UCL’s IMB course and was optimistic of fact of having a bright future ahead of me upon graduating from the course.

From evaluating the e-skills community website, the first thing I noticed was that visitors to the website are required to register before seeing any content on the website which I believe should maybe be reconsidered. However, once registered to the site, it is very clear and concise and navigating through it is an effortless task. Personally, I rarely use the actual website since I tend to get the updates through the ITMB page on social media websites such as the Facebook and Twitter, which I personally believe is a more convenient source to view this information. This brings me to my next point where I think that things could be improved upon in that area simply because the Facebook page in particular does not have frequent updates, which is demonstrated by the fact that the last post was posted on September 2nd and the previous post to that was on June 3rd. I believe that this is...
