Business Analytics is at the heart of the modern digital skillset, interpreting the data that shapes an organisation’s decision making. With the increasing influence of data on a business’s operations, combining an understanding of data science with a subject discipline can provide a significant employment advantage.

On this MSc Business Analytics course, students will gain cutting edge and high demand digital skills from industry leading software systems such as AWS Cloud Computing Practitioner, Alteryx Designer Core Certification for data wrangling, machine learning and Tableau certification for data visualisation to make qualified, real world business decisions. The course is designed with future business managers in mind, so no prior coding experience is required, instead focusing on ‘drag and drop’ software to interpret large datasets for analysis.

The course is also designed to enhance student employability, by providing highly sought-after digital skills in the following areas:

  • Cloud computing (AWS Cloud Computing Practitioner)

  • Artificial intelligence

  • Machine learning

  • Predictive analytics (Alteryx Designer certification)

  • Data visualisation skills (Tableau certification)

These skills will allow students to understand the benefits and develop the practical elements in cloud computing required for future managers, using the AWS platform and other key data analytics software systems, to predict and influence future business performance.

The job capabilities embedded in the curriculum will be dedicated towards research, writing, story-telling, problem solving, teamwork and creativity to help bring interpreted data to life, contributing to the integration of digital skills with business domain knowledge, to provide solutions to modern-day business problems.

From time to time, we make changes to our courses to improve the student and learning experience, and this is particularly the case as we continue to respond to the Covid-19 pandemic. If we make a significant change to your chosen course, we’ll let you know as soon as we can.
