Months of entry
Companies need people who can take data and transform it into a powerful strategic asset. This specialisation provides a rigorous, practical foundation in the key skills needed to unlock the value of data, and an in-depth understanding of how companies can use data to make decisions and improve business performance.
The world is changing: more than 30 billion pieces of content are shared on Facebook every month; and companies are capturing trillions of bytes of information about their customers, suppliers, and operations. This explosion of data is disrupting industries and creating new opportunities. Companies need people who can take data, understand it, process it, extract value from it, visualise it, and communicate it. They need people who deeply understand data, its potential and its limitations, who can frame business problems, analyse data with statistical techniques, develop and maintain predictive models, and communicate analytics results to business executives, partners and customers.
Business Analytics requires a combination of management insight, strong quantitative and analytical skills, and an understanding of the technology required to handle data at scale.
UCL School of Management offers innovative undergraduate, postgraduate, and doctoral programmes to prepare people for leadership roles in the next generation of innovation-intensive organisations. The school works closely with global companies and high-growth businesses at the cutting-edge of management practice. UCL Computer Science is a global leader in research in experimental computer science.
Students on the Business Analytics (with specialisation in Management Science) MSc will benefit from the extensive industry networks of both departments.
