PROGRAMME DESCRIPTION

Business Analytics enables organisations exploit the data and IS systems at its disposal to maximise organisational performance. Students will develop the skills necessary to gain business insights to improve decision-making.

The MSc in Business Information and Analytics Systems (MSc BIAS) provides students with a portfolio of business and analytical methods for solving problems and supporting decision making. The MSc BIAS provides students with a specialism in Business Analytics as well as an extensive knowledge of business and IS concepts. At the core of this programme is a selection of topics covering cloud technologies, Business Intelligence and Business Analytics, IT performance management , data management and IT project management. A research project will allow student groups to explore and develop an IT solution to a specific business problem in an area specific to the Business Information and Analytics area. 

Business Analyst and Project Manager are listed as two of the top ten jobs in the IS / IT sector (Read More). The MSc Business Information and Analytics (MSc BIAS) is designed to provide students with the skillset to be successful in these roles. Organisations today need people who know how to manage and store data that helps them make better business decisions, compared to years ago when businesses didn't have data management at their fingertips to review and analyse to help them drive business forward. 

The MSc in Business Information and Analytic Systems degree offers a specialisation in Business Analytics with modules such as:

  • Design thinking for the Business Analyst
  • Business Data Strategy
  • Data Visualisation
  • Business Analytics and Business Intelligence
  • Cognitive Decision Making and DSS

These modules will allow students to acquire the skills to mine and analyse data in ways that will enable more informed decision making and result in better outcomes for the organisation. How organisations capture, create and use data is changing the way we work and live. Businesses have more data readily available than ever before and are aware of the need to understand the underlying messages that are held within their data. However, discovering and identifying the underlying message requires a higher level of thinking and analysis.

Additionally the programme offers a curriculum of core IS modules including: 

  • Cloud Technology
  • Data Acquisition and Management
  • Project Management
  • IT and Organisational Performance
  • Enterprise Business Processes
