Course content

MSc Data Science with Business combines core Data Science modules, taken from MSc Data Science, with modules in Management, Strategy, Marketing and Accounting. This course is taught in partnership between the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences and the University of Exeter Business School. This blend of business and science is designed for students wanting management or leadership roles working with data.

Teaching, taking place over 12 months, covers the fundamental mathematical and computational techniques used to deliver insights and understand phenomena extracted from data sources. Building upon your existing coding skills you will handle complex data sets, learning multiple methods of analysis and efficient approaches to visualisation and presentation. In addition, you will study optional modules on subjects such as governance and ethics, social networks, text analysis and computer vision.

Your project, which forms a major part of the MSc, will maintain a business focus as you explore data science in a commercial environment.
