Course summary

Build your quantitative consultancy skills on the Business Analytics MSc. One of the world’s first business analytics courses, Warwick Business School will help you gain an understanding of the role of business analytics within an organisation, improve your business acumen and communication skills, and get commercial research experience.

Course Overview

Ranked 8th in the world in the QS University Rankings 2019 for MSc Business Analytics, the course features a broad range of theory and applications in analytics, offering you the possibility to conduct external consultancy projects with a real client, and hone programming skills (e.g. SQL, R and Python). You will also be supported in optionally obtaining certification as Associate Certified Analytics Professional. This globally recognised certification is offered by the INFORMS (USA) and the Operational Research Society (UK), and the required knowledge to pass the certification exam is closely aligned with the core content of this course. Descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive analytics are covered, involving visualisation (Tableau), forecasting and data mining techniques, and optimisation.

Assessment is usually a mix of exams, group projects and coursework. Your 10,000 word dissertation will either be as a consultant to an organisation or as applied research.
