Course summary

This innovative and dynamic MSc in Data Analytics and Technologies: Extended offers you the opportunity to develop key employability skills and expertise so you can interrogate and make sense of data, unlock vital insights and communicate your discoveries.

Career Opportunities

Data is rewriting the rules of many professions and employers from government departments to technology start-ups are scrambling to recruit professionals who can help them make sense of it. The demand for workers with specialist data skills is enormous. The UK data market was £1.1 billion in 2018 – the largest in Europe and the second largest in the world (3). Organisations from across the economic spectrum are seeking to recruit people with data science skills and the opportunities for professionals continue to grow.

Our MSc Data Analytics and Technologies: Extended offers a postgraduate route into this in-demand and varied career. It also acts as a bridge into data analysis and technologies if your undergraduate degree was in an unrelated subject area. Additionally, it’s an excellent option if you’ve been working in a relevant field gaining degree-level knowledge through experience and self-study rather than formal education. You can join this course without ever having studied data or computing before.

As a graduate of this master’s degree, you’ll possess an impressive all-round combination of skills and knowledge. In addition to a strong theoretical and practical knowledge of data analytics and technologies, you’ll be able to demonstrate essential interpersonal and people skills, such as collaboration and team working, negotiation and persuasion. You’ll have a clear understanding of the contexts in which data analysts work, coupled with commercial awareness and business-relevant knowledge. You’ll also possess high-level academic skills in research, critical thinking and curiosity. Not only will all this help you become established early on in your career, but you’ll also be primed to take on leadership roles. Moreover, you’ll have the lifelong learning, problem-solving and decision-making skills needed to adapt to new challenges throughout your career.
