Businesses are increasingly collecting large amounts of information about their customers and activities on a daily basis. This ‘big data’ is big news with the media, businesses and government as they consider how to use this mass of information in a meaningful way.
Analysts use their expertise to make sense of this information and interpret it, enabling evidence-based business decisions. They are in high demand with employers in all sectors.
Our MSc Business Analytics and Decision Sciences is taught by internationally recognised academics and business practitioners from our Centre for Decision Research. They are actively engaged in the latest research, advising businesses, governments and international bodies about contemporary issues in decision making. They share this expertise and knowledge with you in the classroom.
This Masters degree is ideal if you have a good grounding in quantitative subjects, and wish to develop and apply your analytical skills in a business environment.
Graduates of the MSc Business Analytics and Decision Sciences can expect to have the quantitative skills to analyse complex business information, and use the resulting intelligence to inform business decisions.
You will be ideally placed to pursue a career in analytics and decision making, general and specialist management roles in a range of industries, or as business or market analysts.
Employers in both private and public sectors are actively seeking graduates with these skills, and trends show that the career opportunities are fast increasing. Articles in Businessweek, recent pieces published by McKinsey & Company, and many other publications evidence a buoyant demand for graduates with these skills, both in the UK and internationally.
The deadline for International applications is 31 March 2017.
The deadline for UK/EU applications is 31 August 2017.
