Course summary

Overview

This course explores the application and development of techniques used by enterprises for the analysis of business information. Throughout the course we will expand your knowledge of contemporary software tools and help you to gain invaluable insights into real-world solutions through our research groups, guest lectures and seminars.

On our Business Intelligence Systems and Data Mining MSc, your learning will be supported by experienced SAS-accredited staff, who will equip you with a comprehensive understanding of SAS business intelligence software.

You will learn about the Business Intelligence system concept, its application in organisations, and its relationships with other computer-based information systems – such as decision and management support, data warehouses and artificial intelligence.

We will teach you to review data mining methods and techniques available for effectively uncovering important information from large data sets. In doing so, you will develop an in-depth knowledge of data mining methods and gain practical experience of using the data mining software, SAS Enterprise Miner.

You will graduate with an accredited, industry-recognised certification from SAS and be well placed to take up management and business information systems development roles in the industry.

Teaching and assessments

Assessment will usually be cariied out through a combination of individual and group work, presentations, reports, projects and exams. Compulsory taught modules give you the opportunity to gain the fundamental knowledge and practices required to apply, develop and research business intelligence systems, while optional modules provide you with chances to study particular aspects of system application and development in more depth. The individual project module allows you to undertake research into an aspect of business intelligence systems that interests you, and/or to perform appropriate business intelligence development tasks in response to a given practical problem.

There is a very high market demand for SAS expertise, and our graduates will be able to take up such opportunities.
