Worldwide, there is a shortage of professionals with the skills to apply analytical techniques to interrogate data sets to describe and predict business performance; such as data analysts, data miners and data scientists. These analytic roles require professionals with an advanced understanding of the business problem, who are adept at navigating the technical landscape, are problem-solvers with technical expertise and excellent communicators. Postgraduate students with these skills and abilities are in high demand.
Data Analytics MSc, developed and run with SAS, has been specifically designed to equip you with the skills and abilities to address this shortage. On successful completion of the course you will have developed your analytic and technical knowledge, and enhanced your professional skills within a Business Intelligence context.
You will be equipped with the relevant skills for employment in any field of data science (such as business intelligence, data mining, SAS programming and database design) within any target industry, with the additional option to complete a placement year in industry to further enhance your employability.
You should have the equivalent of a British Honours degree (2:2 minimum) in a subject that shows some evidence of analytical, technical or logical aptitude. International students should hold an IELTS score of 6.0 with no component below 5.5 or equivalent. If you have no formal academic qualifications, but do have extensive industry experience, we will consider your application on an individual basis.
