Why this course?

Organisations across the world are looking to gain a sustainable competitive edge in an increasingly difficult environment. The smarter organisations are using business analysis to make better decisions and deliver business performance and improvement.

That means more than just collecting and routinely processing large amounts of business data. It means applying sophisticated quantitative techniques to help with decisions, particularly at the strategic levels.

This distance learning course focuses on applying advanced analytical methods to business problems to help managers make better decisions.

You’ll develop an understanding of key quantitative business analysis methods. You’ll also be introduced to business models used to support the development of strategy for organisations and to help them to monitor and measure strategic processes. You’ll also develop key consulting skills to effectively support management.

See the website https://www.strath.ac.uk/courses/postgraduatetaught/businessanalysisconsultingdistancelearning/

If you wish to proceed to the Postgraduate Diploma you need to be in appropriate employment. The final decision as to what is "appropriate employment" remains with the University of Strathclyde. However, if your employment covers all of the following, you're likely to be in the correct type of post:
- solving problems owned by someone else
- ill-defined problems
- working in teams
- the opportunity to use a variety of Business Analysis techniques
- your work has an influence on the operation of your organisations

Your employment should require some analysis of business situations, in the private or public sector. Samples of your work will form the basis of reflection and learning projects, guided by a personal mentor.

- MSc in Business Analysis & Consulting
Students who complete the Diploma and gain sufficient marks to proceed to the MSc will be expected to undertake a project. The project will be integrated with your employment. You'll have individual personal mentoring to guide you in reflection and learning.

- Modern PC running Windows Vista or higher, web cam, headset with microphone

The Master of Professional Business Analysis is a conversion programme designed for graduates outside the ICT sector who want to become business analysts. Read more

The Master of Professional Business Analysis is a conversion programme designed for graduates outside the ICT sector who want to become business analysts.

The Master of Professional Business Analysis (MBusAn) degree has been developed as a component of the Wellington ICT Graduate School created by Victoria University and its partners. The programme is closely linked with industry requirements and courses are offered with industry collaboration.

Degree structure

The Master of Professional Business Analysis (MBusAn) consists of 10 taught courses plus a project taken full-time over 12 months, starting in July (Trimester 2) of each year.

Courses in the first part of the programme are organised around seminars where students learn about the latest theoretical advances, and apply these to a case which mirrors the challenges and complexities of a real-world business.

In the second part of the programme, courses are organised as clinics and students work directly with industry partners in a workshop setting, examining real business problems, and the final project requires significant time working with an industry partner, under the supervision of an academic.

Course descriptions

The Master of Professional Business Analysis is a 180-point degree consisting of ten 15-point courses and a 30-point project, as follows:

Part 1 Core business analysis courses (total 90 points)

  • MBUA 510 Business and Systems Analysis
  • MBUA 511 Process Design
  • MBUA 512 Databases and Analytics
  • MBUA 513 Management of IT Projects for Business Analysts
  • MBUA 514 Enterprise Architecture
  • MBUA 515 Information Systems Innovation and Strategy

Part 2 Business environment (total 45 points)

  • MBUA 521 Global Business Environment
  • MBUA 522 Organisational Behaviour
  • MBUA 523 Accounting for Managers

Part 3 Project and consulting skills (total 45 points)

  • MBUA 531 Information Systems Consulting Practice
  • MBUA 532 Project (30 points)

Courses will be centred on practical problem-solving tasks, and typically will start with a problem described in a case or directly by an industry partner. The courses will enable students to apply the various concepts seen in the classroom to the industry problem during the trimester.

In addition, it is expected that the 30-point project, MBUA 532, will be used to build on the knowledge covered in the courses. Projects are seen as an "industry intensive period", enabling students to reflect on how the academic content can be applied to a complex situation.

Career opportunities

The MBusAn programme seeks to provide capabilities to students to meet the shortage of skills observed in the ICT sector.

In 2017, business analysts still topped the list of skills in demand 

646KB according to the latest Tech Employer Insight Report (Absolute IT, March 2017), with 79% of tech employers planning to hire in the coming year and more than half planning pay increases for existing staff.

In addition students must choose two optional modules from the list below.

How we teach you

A holistic approach

Effective leadership requires more than first-class business acumen. It also requires a degree of self-awareness and sensitivity. Henley is renowned for its well-researched, professional approach to this aspect of business education and all our postgraduate programmes examine this aspect of leadership - helping to create emotionally intelligent graduates who can be fully effective in their chosen careers.

How you will learn

Henley Business School enjoys a strong reputation for the practical application of business ideas and concepts, underpinned by academic excellence and the strength of our research. We offer high-quality technical skills training as well as a deep understanding of the importance of personal development for leaders, a thread that runs through all of our Masters programmes.

Our postgraduate masters programmes feature a mix of core and optional modules, allowing you to tailor your degree towards your individual personal development needs and career ambitions. You will complete up to 10 taught modules during your programme, totalling 180 credits. One module usually equates to 20 credits or 10 hours of work per week. Your week will include lectures, tutorials, workshops and personal study, with each accounting for 25% of your time on average. This stimulating mix of lectures and interactive tutorials provides you with the opportunity to discuss and explore the subject material in depth with your lecturers and fellow students. You will be introduced to the latest thinking and research findings and be able to challenge some of those that have created it. You will also explore real-world issues and tackle current business challenges, and interact with guest lectures and speakers from industry, giving you the opportunity to test, extend and refine your knowledge and skills.

How we assess you

You will learn and be assessed through a wide variety of teaching methods which vary depending on your chosen Masters programme. These include online materials and multimedia content, guest lectures, individual and group assignments, case studies, field visits, dealing room simulations, presentations, applied projects, consultancy work and examinations.

On average examinations form around 70% of the assessed work with the remaining 30% coming from coursework, including a written dissertation or project depending on your chosen programme. The exam period falls between April and June in the summer term, with students taking an average of 5 or 6 exams. Graduation normally takes place in December.

Ongoing support

While postgraduate students are self-motivated and determined individuals, study at this level can present additional pressures which we take seriously. Lecturers are available to discuss the content of each module and your personal tutor can meet with you regularly to discuss any additional issues. Full-time support staff are also available to help with any questions or issues that may arise during your time at Henley

Master's specialisation in Business Analysis and Modelling

The Master's specialisation in Business Analysis and Modelling focuses on two aspects of managerial decision making:
1. The individual and social biases and heuristics leading to suboptimal or even low quality decisions.
2. Interventions aiming at improving managerial decision making (group decision support).

This specialisation shares the application of formal methods and modelling with the Operations Research and Management Science departments of other economic and business administration programmes . However, consistent with the Nijmegen research profile, it looks at (strategic) decision making from the point of view of the ‘Responsible Organisation,' focusing not only on the analytical aspect, but also on the social aspects of decision making.
Students will be trained both in analysing complex problems as well as facilitation skills needed to intervene effectively in decision making processes.

Non Dutch Students

For the Master's programme Business Administration, the admission requirements for students with a non-Dutch diploma are:
- An academic Bachelor's degree in Business Administration
- English language proficiency

Career prospects

Most of the students in the BAM specialisation and in the two-year European Masters in System Dynamics (of which BAM is the Nijmegen component) will find jobs at advisory bureaus or the strategic planning departments of large companies.

Our research in this field

- Theory and action-based learning
This programme is closely associated with the research carried out within the Institute of Management Research, where the focus is on research into relationship management, institutional dynamics, decision making and innovative management. You will become familiar with both the theoretical and practical aspects of your special subject. The programme combines a thorough training in methodology with action-based learning: you apply the theory you have learned to concrete cases and learn to develop appropriate solutions. And, in our Visa Skills Lab, students use computers to make scenario analyses and simulate decision-making processes within organisations.

- Truly international
The education and research training we provide are internationally oriented. Our students have the opportunity to take part in a Master’s level project on European Human Resource Management, a cooperative venture among six leading European business schools and universities. Here, students work in a multi-cultural team and follow a consultancy in-company project in one of the six countries involved.

The specific focus of the MSc Economics for Business Analysis is the analysis of business from the viewpoint of the discipline of economics. In particular, economics analysis is applied to fundamental issues related to the behaviour and performance of modern business organisations. However, in the process of studying the theoretical concepts and empirical methods necessary for research activity in this area, students also appreciate the research process applicable to most areas of economics.

Course content

There are eight taught modules followed by a dissertation in a related area of your choice. Macroeconomic Analysis provides the background against which any analyses of business must take place.

In Economic Analysis of the Firm 1 and 2 the essential nature of the firm and its relationship to other firms is considered using modern economic theory and actual cases. Personnel Economics concerns the contractual relationships between the company and its employees.

Econometrics 1 and 2 and Business Finance and Financial Reporting Analysis provide students with the ability to assemble, analyse and interpret data and published work in the area.

Employment opportunities

The programme aims to give a basis for a career as a business analyst in a financial, industrial or government organisation. Many of our postgraduate students are developing high ranking careers in government, international organisations, business and universities. For instance, in the last four years we have had students who are now employed as university lecturers, in banks and multinational companies. Many have also gone on to register for PhDs.

The International Pre-Masters Certificate in Business and English is designed to prepare non-native English speaking students for postgraduate study in business related disciplines.

You have the opportunity to carry out research projects with local and regional organisations, which will be an enriching cultural experience and enhance your employment prospects.

Successfully completing the course enables you to choose from a range of postgraduate courses to suit your interests and career development needs. These are available at Sheffield Hallam and other academic institutions.

Sheffield Business School runs postgraduate courses in

If you successfully complete this course you will be eligible for a discount on your fees on a full-time Sheffield Business School postgraduate beginning in September.

The course focuses on three areas of skills and knowledge

  • Academic and Business English
  • Academic skills for postgraduate study in a Business context
  • Principles of Business

Course structure

Full-time – 12 weeks

September to December for masters courses starting in January.

Study and Research Skills for Business

The Study and Research Skills for Business module constitutes the larger proportion of the two modules during the twelve week course. In this module you will

  • acquire and apply academic skills, such as researching, referencing, critical reading and writing to a level equivalent to IELTS level 6
  • develop listening skills in the context of academic settings, such as lectures, and business settings, such as meetings, debates and news broadcasts to a level equivalent to IELTS level 6
  • develop oral communication skills for business negotiation and presentation to a level equivalent to IELTS level 6
  • develop employability skills: apply your business knowledge, theory and understanding in a real work context in an assessed project collaboration with a local business

Principles of Business

The Principles of Business module provides you with fundamentals of Business Strategy, Global Business and Finance. The module is designed to give students an understanding and appreciation of the contemporary issues faced by businesses, both within national and international markets.

It will interlink three broad subject areas: Strategic Management, Business Practice and Financial Management and will introduce students to the fundamental features and concepts of business management. For those students who do possess some business experience the module will provide academic underpinning to their business practise.

By engaging successfully with this module a student will be able to appreciate and appraise different theories and frameworks in the context of Business and Management, evaluate real life company situations by applying conceptual knowledge and understanding of business practice, and apply theories, concepts and frameworks to analyse and evaluate practical management solutions and formulate operational strategies.

Employability

This is a pre-masters course which allows you to progress to a postgraduate course leading to many careers in all business-related areas.

If you successfully complete this course you will be eligible for a discount on your fees for a full-time Sheffield Business School postgraduate beginning in September.

The course is designed in such a way that it contributes towards Sheffield Hallam University Postgraduate attributes. High level transferable skills, such as knowledge application, creative and critical thinking, research and enquiry are integral to the course. You will be encouraged to develop skills that will underpin your future academic and professional development. For example, during the assessed debate students propose a new sales strategy for a UK company, and present and defend their idea to their peers who take on the role of directors of different departments of the company, understanding the different drivers from each area of the company in the decision-making process.

The modules include case studies, team working and industry examples. Module content and related assessment will focus on past and present business scenarios and will form a vital chain in connecting theory with practice. These situations and practice led examples will enhance the student experience and will count towards greater student employability.

A major enhancement to the course will be the opportunity for you to carry out an assessed project based on real-world business problems faced by local organisations, which will be supported by the Venture Matrix team and by module tutors. The project aims to enhance your business awareness and take an enquiry-based approach to learning. The opportunity to visit and communicate regularly with a company will be particularly beneficial to you as an international student from the point of view of business engagement and real-life practical experience. You will be supported through this experience by the module teaching team to propose research-led solutions to a real business issue for a real company.

Examples of previous projects have included market research for a luxury snack company, researching new markets for a local engineering manufacturer, investigating the potential for a sportswear start-up and a competitor analysis for an online service provider.
