Course summary

Given the ever-increasing volume of data that businesses have access to today, there is a demand for employees who have computational and analytical skills and who can help inform business decisions to increase efficiency and ultimately build a competitive edge. Our MSc in Business Analytics has been developed with just that in mind and aims to train you to understand: the variety of business environments; the importance and relevance of decision-making problems facing organisations; ways of solving these using a variety of techniques.

What will I learn?

You will learn how to apply descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive analytics of big data concepts and techniques to generate valuable insight that can assist with decision-making.

Our MSc will provide you with hands-on experience in applying these concepts and using these techniques, as well as most of the popular analytics software, and through your projects, including industry projects.
