Royal Holloway, University of London: Business Analytics
|Institution||Royal Holloway, University of London|
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)
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.

Students are required to choose either a Dissertation or Consultancy Project which are optional non-condonable modules. Only one dissertation is permitted.
Teaching and learning will be delivered in the form of lectures, and seminars, coursework assignments, supervised individual project, and guided independent study. Students will write a dissertation as part of their studies.
One unique aspect of our curriculum design is the promotion of a ‘curiosity pod’ to support problem solving and enquiry based and personalised learning by students. Designed for experiential learning, our Digital Innovation Lab will be used as our studio where critics will help students become better business analysts in their chosen domains. The role of critics will be to offer opinions, alternatives and different perspectives. The curiosity pod will focus on questioning student work from different perspectives, allowing students time to reflect and integrate their prior learning to real life problems and datasets.
In addition to mandatory modules, there will be a number of optional modules available during the course of your degree. Although Royal Holloway will keep changes to a minimum, new options may be offered or existing ones may be withdrawn. For example where reasonable and necessary due to unexpected events, where requirements of relevant Professional, Statutory or Regulatory Bodies (PSRBs) have changed and course requirements must change accordingly, or where changes are deemed necessary on the basis of student feedback and/or the advice of External Advisors, to enhance academic provision. There may be additional requirements around option selection; please contact the Department for further information.
