Course content

This conversion course is delivered by the Business School, which has AACSB accreditation in recognition of our focus on excellence in all areas. It’s something that fewer than 5% of business schools worldwide have achieved, so you can be sure you’re in good hands.

There is a growing demand for managers who are able to analyse and interpret data to make informed decisions that will improve the performance of their business – identifying organisational problems and emerging market trends quickly and reacting to them to maximise profits and efficiency. This course will help you become exactly the kind of graduate that these organisations are looking for.

Your understanding of analytics will be complemented by developing broader management skills in areas such as human resources, marketing, strategy, accounting, financial management and leadership skills – all within a global context.

When you graduate, you’ll be perfectly placed to identify the management needs to understand and improve the business and translate them into practical action. Your strong background in management combined with knowledge about business analytics and big data analysis will enable you to improve managerial decision using the latest advancements in business analytics. You will understand the technical possibilities and constraints of big data analysis that lie in wait for you. You’ll be able to design useful performance metrics, using recent developments in statistics and business analytics, and interpret their findings to manage and grow successful businesses.

Although this is a conversion course, it is best suited to those with an analytical mind. There’s also an option to undertake a 30-week work placement as part of the course, which may particularly appeal if you are changing disciplines or career focus.
