Course summary

OVERVIEW

Big data is big business. As technology becomes more sophisticated, the power to harness information becomes more valuable. To keep up with competition and progress, businesses need graduates who can harness the power of big data, spot new opportunities and efficiencies.

This course gives you the ability to understand the applications, identify the opportunities and master the tools that turn business analytics into business impact.

You’ll cover a balance of techniques and practical skills, learning how big data can deliver the kind of insights that can cut costs, deliver efficiency and boost profits. There are a range of option units on offer, while your dissertation will offer you the chance to dive deep into a topic that interests you, so you’ll find plenty of opportunities to tailor your studies around your ambitions.

Learn from the experts

While it’s a specialist field at the forefront of analytics, you don’t need advanced technical skills or a degree in business intelligence or analytics to join us. You can enrol with no prior knowledge of business or management, and develop the expertise needed for specialist roles in this rewarding field.

To explore the sector, you’ll get valuable insights into the important role business analysis plays in modern organisations through our guest lecture series. We invite experienced and active professionals from different areas of the industry to give you an idea of the potential career paths available to you when you graduate.

CAREER PROSPECTS

With our MSc Business Analytics under your belt, you could be a valuable addition to organisations in a vast variety of industries – with an insight into the inner workings of business operations, together with the understanding to improve efficiency and find smarter ways of connecting with customers.

So, as well as traditional business analytics roles, this course could open doors to opportunities in areas such as:

  • Big Data
  • Cloud Computing
  • Project Management
  • Data Warehousing
  • Software & Programmatic
  • Customer Relationship Management

You may also choose to enter the field as a freelance business consultant, or apply your new skills to create your own business.
