Course Details

MSc Business Intelligence and Analytics

Our MSc Business Intelligence and Analytics is a one year course ideal for students with a numerical background who have an interest in acquiring an in-depth specialist knowledge and a critical understanding of the key aspects of data management and analysis. Through interactive and practical learning, you will get to understand and experiment with technologies first-hand, whilst learning about the importance of maintaining up-to-date systems to ensure information remains valid, useful and protected.

We have designed this course to give you the best possible opportunities to explore and learn about the new tools available to apply correct statistical techniques for decision making and develop the required skills to communicate your findings in ways that non-data scientists will understand. You will also receive plenty of support in the expansion of your research skills through our Research Methods and Professional Development exercises, created to complement your dissertation project.

Should you be unable to complete the full programme, you may still be awarded a Diploma or Certificate depending on terms completed
