Course summary

How can analysing data solve real-life problems? What does it mean to think statistically? If you’re numerate and analytically minded, this degree can help launch your career in industry, finance, the public sector, government or consulting. In fact, in any data-rich and technology-dependent organisation.

This is a four-year industry degree. You will learn techniques and approaches that help organisations plan and improve their decision-making process. We will teach you how to make forecasts and use data to understand complex behaviour. You’ll be introduced to operational and strategic business contexts. As part of a team, you will work on a project for an actual client in the Lancaster area.

In your second and final years you will study a set of compulsory project management modules, which will act as a ‘core' to help you put ideas into practice, gain employee support during organisational change initiatives, and improve your consultancy skills. You will also choose modules from specialist ‘tracks' if you wish. The Business Analytics track delivers the mathematical tools to develop practical, numerate and computer-based modelling.

The Operations, Logistics and Supply Chain Management track explores the problems faced by operations managers. It covers topics such as purchasing, inventory planning and risk analysis. Perhaps you want to learn more about designing and managing the computer-based systems of our digital economy. If so, the Information Systems specialism track is for you.

Your third year consists of a supervised placement in industry, with previous students joining companies such as IBM and Bosch. Roles in finance, support or operations allow you to see how processes and theories are used. This experience also provides valuable insight for your final year academic studies.

Truly modern organisations rely on sophisticated analysis and technology to perform effectively. We are proud to produce creative, technically competent and skilled graduates who can deliver these skills and more.

Careers

The benefit of a Business Analytics and Consultancy degree is its wide application across the business world. Our graduates work for large and small companies around the world, in a variety of roles. The skills you gain from your degree are highly sought after in order to solve business problems and improve decision making.

For example in the travel industry, business analytics are used to help airlines ensure that staff and aircraft are where they are needed, or in deciding variable room rates for hotel companies. Business analytic skills can also help banks and finance companies weigh up credit risks to determine lending policies.

Even within the health sector, business analytic skills are valuable to help healthcare providers keep waiting times down and improve services. Supermarkets use business analytics to plan their stock and manufacturers rely on analytics to ensure that their products are made when their customers need them, at the right price and quality. Roles in any of these situations are possible with a business analytics and consultancy degree.
