Why this course?

Our MSc in data analytics is designed to create rounded data analytics problem-solvers.

This course focuses on the uses of data analytics techniques within business contexts, making informed decisions about appropriate technology to extract knowledge from data and understanding the theoretical principles by which such technology operates.

You'll gain a comprehensive skill set that will enable you to work in a variety of sectors using a blended learning approach that combines theory, intensive practice and industrial engagement.

Strathclyde's MSc in data analytics is unique by bringing together essential skills from three departments, Management Science, Mathematics & Statistics, and Computer & Information Sciences (CIS), in order to address the needs of a fast-growing industry.

This collaboration avoids the narrow interpretation of this subject offered by competitor institutions and presents significant opportunities for businesses to recruit data analytics experts with a high-level expertise and knowledge.

What you’ll study

The course will have a duration of 1 year, with two semesters of classes (120 credits in total) followed by an MSc dissertation project (60 credits) during the summer.

The class Data Analytics in Practice (20 credits) will be run over both semesters to provide you with a practical environment to apply methodological learnings from other classes into challenging projects from industry.

Semester 1

Semester 1 will additionally consist of five 10-credit core modules as listed under 'Course Content' which will provide the technical background to students. The contributions in Semester 1 will be split evenly between three departments.

This semester is designed to provide you with the fundamental technical analytics knowledge from all three departments.

  • Computer & Information Sciences courses will cover core techniques including machine learning and data mining as well as data visualisation and big data platforms
  • Mathematics courses will ensure you gain strong computational skills while establishing a broad knowledge of statistical tools essential for analytics
  • Management Science courses will build the foundations of business skills including problem structuring as well as decision analysis, in addition to providing essential practical skills

Semester 2

Semester 2 will additionally consist of a 10-credit core module as well as 40 credits worth of elective modules. To ensure breadth of knowledge, you'll be required to choose electives from at least two departments. This semester is designed to extend your core skills and provide you with opportunities through a broad range of electives to specialise in areas that you are particularly interested to excel.

The only technical core class will provide you with a thorough theoretical and practical understanding of optimisation techniques essential for data analytics, whereas each of the three departments will offer four to five elective courses, the majority of which are accessible to everyone on the course without any prerequisites. The final component of the MSc course will be a summer dissertation project, which can be completed either through a client-based project or a desk-based research project, depending on your interests. You will submit your dissertation in September to complete your degree requirements (pending any resits).

Work placement

You will have optional opportunities to complete your MSc summer dissertation projects in client-based projects, where a number of host organisations will be arranged by the department. These projects will be normally unpaid, however, all costs such as travel and accommodation will be covered by the host organisation if out of town.

Major projects

The taught modules on the programme introduce you to a variety of tools, techniques, methods and models. However, the practical reality of applying analytical methods in business is often far removed from the classroom. Working with decision-makers on real issues presents a variety of challenges.

For example, data may well be ambiguous and hard to come by, it may be far from obvious which data analytics methods can be applied and managers will need to be convinced of the business merits of any suggested solutions. While traditional teaching can alert students to such issues, understanding needs to be reinforced by experience.

This is primarily addressed by the core module ‘Data Analytics in Practice’, which takes place over both semesters. Every year, case studies and challenging projects are presented to our students by various organisations.

Facilities

Strathclyde Business School (SBS) is one of the 76 triple-accredited business schools in the world, and is one of the largest of its kind in Europe. SBS was also recently selected as the "Business School of the Year" in Times Higher Education (THE) Awards.

The three departments involved in this course work together to provide a dynamic, fully-rounded and varied programme of specialist and cross-disciplinary postgraduate course.

Learning & teaching

The course is delivered in various ways. While most classes have regular lectures, tutorials and hands-on software sessions, experiential learning is a crucial part of the course. This is delivered through projects and case studies with various external organisations, and MSc projects.

There are also guest lectures and recruitment events throughout the year, as well as a number of career support sessions that provide you with invaluable career information and generic job hunting skills such as CV writing and how to handle interviews.

Assessment

Every module has its own methods of assessment appropriate to the nature of the material. These include written assignments, exams, practical team projects, presentations and individual projects. Many modules involve more than one method of assessment to realise your potential.

Careers

The aim of the MSc in data analytics is to develop graduates who can use data analytics technology, understand the statistical principles behind the technologies and understand how to apply these technologies to solve business problems.

Graduates will be able to bridge the various knowledge domains that are relevant for tackling data analytics problems as well as being able to identify emerging themes and directions within data analytics. Graduates will display abilities across the three component disciplines

Why study this degree at UCL?

The world is changing: more than 30 billion pieces of content are shared on Facebook every month; and companies are capturing trillions of bytes of information about their customers, suppliers, and operations. This explosion of data is disrupting industries and creating new opportunities. Companies need people who can take data, understand it, process it, extract value from it, visualise it, and communicate it. They need people who deeply understand data, its potential and its limitations, who can frame business problems, analyse data with statistical techniques, develop and maintain predictive models, and communicate analytics results to business executives, partners and customers.

Business Analytics requires a combination of management insight, strong quantitative and analytical skills, and an understanding of the technology required to handle data at scale.

UCL School of Management offers innovative undergraduate, postgraduate, and doctoral programmes to prepare people for leadership roles in the next generation of innovation-intensive organisations. The school works closely with global companies and high-growth businesses at the cutting-edge of management practice.

Prepare for an efficient leadership within the digital transformation to create value for businesses and society

At the intersection between data science, statistics and management, Business Analytics consists of using data to inform strategic decision making under uncertainty and to optimise business processes. In the digital economy with the proliferation of data, businesses have understood the tactical and strategic importance of analytics - the learning from data - as a critical field to detect and monitor client behaviours and expectations, or even future market trends.

Business Analytics tries to answer the following questions: "What has happened?" (descriptive analytics), "Why did it happen?" (explanatory or diagnostic analytics), "What will happen?" (predictive analytics) and "What should be done?" (prescriptive analytics). As such, Business Analytics is about bringing the business questions to the data.

Investing in Business Analytics can lead to a substantial competitive advantage, which, in certain sectors, ensures prosperity or even survival. Analytics is also one of the most promising approaches for public authorities who, in terms of transport, energy or public health, are required to manage and leverage the explosion of data to generate greater value for both businesses and society.

Given the increasing importance of "big data" in the economy, GSEM offers a new master program in Business Analytics that provides a wide range of career opportunities. This program responds to the growing need of medium to large organisations to leverage the use of data and to transform data assets into better management decisions.

Objectives

  • Support students to manage, analyse and use data in strategic, tactical and operational decision making under uncertainty
  • Prepare students for an efficient leadership within the digital transformation to create value for businesses and society
  • Bridge the gap between university education and professional needs

Career opportunities

With the proliferation of data and the present lack of analytical talent, students of the Master in Business Analytics will have excellent career opportunities across the globe. The McKinsey Global Institute estimated in 2016 a demand of 2 to 4 million “business translators” that serve as the link between analytical talent and practical business applications in the US economy by 2026. In 2017, the Business Higher Education Forum and PricewaterhouseCoopers projected data science and analytics-related job postings in the US alone to grow from 2.35 million in 2015 to 2.72 million by 2020.

Application

The application procedure opens every year at the beginning of January.

Applications close on 28 February for all students.

There is only one Master intake in September every year. Attendance is mandatory for admitted students from day one.
