Course description

The McKinsey Global Institute calls big data “the next frontier for innovation, competition and productivity” and estimated the gap in data analysis professionals of approximately 140,000 to 190,000 potential positions.

Businesses and industry have already realised that investment in big data is absolutely necessary to survive in the modern world. The epoch of big data is here. Every day you can find hundreds of data-analysis related vacancies in the UK.

The MSc in Data Analysis for Business Intelligence will prepare you to work with data in the business environment, using mathematical, statistical and computational skills – including data mining and practical database coding skills. This course seeks to train the generation of world-leaders in data analysis and, to this end, you will be taught by world-leaders in the field.

You will learn how to discover knowledge in data as well as honing the data analysis skills required to perform predictive and prescriptive modelling in real-world business situations.
