Course summary

Course Overview

Our Business Analytics Masters course provides you with the opportunity and skills to explore the latest techniques for analysing ‘big data’ to identify patterns, interpret trends and advance your organisation’s drive for strategic change.

Aimed at those with an interest in problem solving and critical thinking, this course welcomes those from any undergraduate background, including applicants who have no previous business or analytics experience. Our Business Analytics MSc develops broad business skills while offering specialist knowledge in business analytics for tomorrow’s business leaders.

The course culminates in either a Master’s Dissertation, Management Enquiry, or, if you prefer, a Consultancy Project where you’ll tackle an issue faced by a real client. Throughout the course, you will gain critical business intelligence knowledge and develop data insights supported by a strong analytics toolbox. A combination of modules on data management and visualisation, forecasting and predictive analytics, business analytics in practice will prepare you for data challenges and equip you with skills to effectively navigate a continuously changing digital landscape.

Your Career

Graduates of this course can pursue a wide range of professional and graduate management positions in areas of business consulting, data science, analytics, management, information systems, project management, supply chain management, operations management as well as non-business disciplines.

As part of this course you will build a portfolio of materials that can be presented to employers to demonstrate your development and appropriateness for roles in the business analytics field, the content of which will be informed by the work you undertake in the modules you study.

You may decide you want to start up your own business, it’s good to know that the combined turnover of our graduates’ start-up companies is higher than that of any other UK university. This course is also the ideal stepping stone if you’re interested in a career in academic research, and successful graduates may be eligible for advanced entry onto our PhD or DBA programmes.

Whatever you decide to do, you will have the transferable skills that employers expect from a Master’s graduate from Northumbria University. These include the ability to tackle complex issues through conceptualisation and undertaking research, the ability to contribute to new processes and knowledge, and the ability to formulate balanced judgements when considering incomplete or ambiguous data.
