Entry requirements

Our MSc Business Analytics Consulting programme equips you with the skills that employers value, by combining the rigorous modelling and consulting skills needed to understand, manage and communicate useful insights from ‘big data’ – often referred to as the oil of the 21st century.

Business Analytics Consulting MSc will enable you to consult with organisations and governments to help them make informed strategic business or policy decisions. Taught modules are delivered by our group of internationally recognised management scientists who are actively working with business, government and non-profit organisations to tackle routine, strategic or policy problems.

Our MSc Business Analytics Consulting programme has a number of industrial collaborators who ensure that the focus of our taught modules is of both academic and practical relevance and contribute to our curriculum delivering workshops and guest talks. Our collaborators include practitioners from companies such as tui, npower, BT, IBM, SAS, British Airways, and Government departments through the Government Operational Research Service. In addition, SAS sponsor a student prize, and one of our modules – Managing Big Data – is developed in close collaboration with IBM.

During the summer you will undertake a supervised consulting or research project. Recent consulting projects have been with companies such as tui, npower, dstl, and defra. This will give you the opportunity to apply powerful tools such as data mining, forecasting, optimisation, simulation and decision analysis to a particular area of business or policy, equipping you with skills highly prized by employers.
