This exciting MSc Data Science for Business is the first in Scotland to be run in partnership with SAS, a global leader in business analytics solutions. We’ve worked together with leading financial services organisation HSBC and The Data Lab to develop the course so it meets industry needs.
This MSc course provides you with a deep understanding of the industrial and scientific relevance of advanced analytics and their application in strategic and operational decision-making. The course addresses the acknowledged shortage of business leaders and managers with a detailed working knowledge of data analytics. As a graduate you’ll have a highly sought-after blend of data analytics, business acumen and advanced management skills.
You can develop specialist skills by choosing elective modules from finance, computing science and management.
