The MSc is offered in collaboration with QMUL’s School of Mathematics and is aimed at students who are highly numerate and have a strong interest in developing statistical and business skills required to succeed in the digital economy.
This exciting new programme is ideal for anybody aiming to direct businesses in today’s digital economy. You will learn how to use insights from business analysis to inform strategy, provide direction for leadership and create value.

Our program will take you beyond analytics and programming, teaching you how businesses are structured, how they operate and how digital skills are used to enhance business performance. You will gain an awareness of the leadership and organisational challenges associated with large scale change projects driven by the digitisation of businesses and develop important leadership qualities such as communication, negotiation and team work.
You will be exposed to real world cases from different markets and countries and learn from the experiences of current managers working in a wide range of sectors. You will also have the opportunity to work on a consultancy project in collaboration with an industry partner.
