MSc Business Analytics

Build your quantitative consultancy skills with our MSc Business Analytics

Join us on our MSc Business Analytics course to learn how to gain insights from large data sets using statistical methods, optimisation techniques and predictive models, and apply these to business problems.

You will cover a balance of descriptive, predictive, and prescriptive analytics, involving visualisation (Tableau), forecasting and data mining techniques, and optimisation. Gain a cross-disciplinary training in business models, quantitative methods and data science, and prepare for a future career working in complex data-driven environments.

You will also further develop your programming skills in SQL, R, and Python, and gain guidance in obtaining optional certification as Associate Certified Analytics Professional. This globally recognised certification is offered by the INFORMS (USA) and the Operational Research Society (UK), and the required knowledge to pass the certification exam is closely aligned with the core content of this course. 

This course is now closed for our 2022 intake. Applications for our 2023 intake will open in October 2022 – we recommend applying early due to a highly competitive selection process.
