Course summary

Overview

The course equips you to become a data-driven leader against a backdrop of rapid change, in which businesses are increasingly relying on big data to make their most important decisions. Globally, the demand for data scientists has grown at a faster rate than supply - with a 344% increase in job postings in the field since 2013 (Indeed, 2019). Yet 77% of companies say it’s difficult to recruit people with the big data skills they need. By studying our online Masters, you’ll be perfectly positioned to meet this growing demand.

As you progress on the course, you’ll develop highly sought-after skills, including:

  • An understanding of the industrial and scientific relevance of analytics
  • The ability to apply data-led insights in strategic decision-making
  • Business acumen and advanced management know-how

Real-world case studies and a focus on current business issues give you the opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of the use of data analytics in solving the challenges you'll encounter in the workplace.

The entire course is studied online, enabling you to fit your studies around personal and professional demands. You’ll learn through a combination of video lectures, live webinars and course materials that are easy to access wherever you are, whenever it works for you. Our intuitive learning hub also offers collaborative tools that make it simple to connect with tutors and fellow students, creating a rich online environment built around human-centred learning.

Course objectives

Over the duration of the course you'll:

  • Acquire knowledge, skills and experience for a successful career in data driven roles
  • Understand the applications and implications of data analytics in organisations across different sectors
  • Develop knowledge and skills of data analytics tools and techniques for business decision making
  • Enhance your capabilities and confidence for championing data analytic projects
