Course content

Data is everywhere and is growing rapidly every day. In a fast-changing digital world, there is a very high demand for game-changers who can predict business needs and who can understand and interpret data to make effective decisions.

Our Business Analytics Masters course provides you with the opportunity and skills to explore the latest techniques for analysing ‘big data’ to identify patterns, interpret trends and advance your organisation’s drive for strategic change.

Aimed at those with an interest in problem solving and critical thinking, this course welcomes those from any undergraduate background, including applicants who have no previous business or analytics experience. Our Business Analytics MSc develops broad business skills while offering specialist knowledge in business analytics for tomorrow’s business leaders.

The course culminates in either a Master’s Dissertation, Management Enquiry, or, if you prefer, a Consultancy Project where you’ll tackle an issue faced by a real client. Throughout the course, you will gain critical business intelligence knowledge and develop data insights supported by a strong analytics toolbox. A combination of modules on data management and visualisation, forecasting and predictive analytics, business analytics in practice will prepare you for data challenges and equip you with skills to effectively navigate a continuously changing digital landscape.
