Course summary

This distance learning course focuses on the uses of data analytics techniques within business contexts, making informed decisions about appropriate technology to extract knowledge from data and understanding the theoretical principles by which such technology operates.

The degree has been jointly developed by the Departments of Management Science, Mathematics & Statistics and Computer & Information Sciences. It brings together essential skills from all three departments in order to address the needs of a fast-growing industry.

This unique collaboration avoids the narrow interpretation of the subject offered by similar degrees and presents significant opportunities for businesses to recruit data analytics experts with high-level expertise and knowledge.

The aim of the PgCert in Data Analytics is to develop graduates who can use data analytics technology, understand the statistical principles behind the technologies and understand how to apply these technologies to solve business problems.

Assessment

Classes are assessed by written assignments and examinations. Examinations will take place at local centers.
