Course summary

Why this course?

The MSc in Business Analysis & Consulting has been developed to equip you with the practical, evaluative and analytical skills to allow you, as a future manager or consultant, to influence and develop strategy and performance within organisations.

You'll learn the key quantitative business analysis methods necessary to evaluate performance.

Industry involvement is at the heart of the course. You'll spend three weeks in January on a work placement, and have the opportunity to undertake your summer project in collaboration with an external organisation.

In addition, you'll learn how to use business models to support the development of strategy for organisations and to help them to monitor and measure strategic processes.

By the end of the programme, you'll have developed the key skills of business consulting, which are applicable to any organisation.

What you'll study

The core Becoming an Effective Business Analysis class runs over both semesters and provides you with a practical environment to apply business analysis and consulting tools from other classes into challenging real problems offered by industrial clients.

Semester 1 is designed to provide you with the fundamental technical and soft knowledge required for a business analyst/consultant. This includes key skills to structure client problems, analyse hard/soft data, build forecasting models and managing the operations.

Semester 2 is designed to extend your core skills and provide you with opportunities through a broad range of electives to help you to have specialised knowledge in areas such as risk analysis, strategy modelling, big data analytics and business simulation. You also have the opportunity to study a business class offered by other departments in Strathclyde Business School during the Spring School.

Students will also achieve PgCert and PgDip exit awards during this course.


The combination of the quantitative and qualitative skills learned, along with the real experience of working with various clients problems throughout the course, will make you attractive to employers. By the end of the programme you'll be well placed for a client focussed career by providing model-based decision support to management at a strategic and operational level. For the last decade our graduates have been able to find jobs across different sectors from oil and gas industry, hospitality to junior and senior consultancy roles.
