Course summary

Why choose this course

In our fast-paced, data-driven modern world, business analysts help organisations turn big data into big ideas. Artificial intelligence, machine learning and management science power decisions in business. You’ll gain data-led insights and optimise businesses by using descriptive, predictive and prescriptive analytics.

Our highly practical MSc Business Analytics course will transform you into a confident lateral thinker who is up-to-date on the latest theory and practice. While you benefit from the input of inspiring industry experts, in class and on-site, we will also make sure you’re immersed in the business problems faced by the global business community today.

What you will study

This course will take your career to the next level and develop your ability to make the big decisions about data in a confident fashion. Your studies will focus on two areas: analysing business data and using data to solve business challenges. On this course, you will have an opportunity to use artificial intelligence to improve a chess game, game theory to create games, or computational intelligence with genetic algorithms. You’ll also discover visualisations from graphs and explore virtual reality, gaining insights from data mining and machine learning.
