Course Summary

Are you a critical thinker with the ability to analyse and interpret data? Are you looking to gain practical experience, as you study?

Overview

Business Analytics is the process of predicting the needs of an organisation and analysing the effectiveness of past and present activity. This sought-after and growing business discipline is a strategic necessity for any organisation.

Our MSc Business Analytics with Industrial Placement course is delivered by published academics and in collaboration with industry leaders. You’ll learn the skills, technologies, applications and practices to become an expert in interpreting and analysing enterprise data effectively.

Taking a 12-month industrial placement allows you to gain work experience in the UK or overseas as part of your Master's. While the placements are self-sought, the School offers support through extra-curricular engagement with our dedicated placements team. Opting for this course with a placement takes the length of your course to up to two years.

Assessment

Your progress on this course is assessed by coursework only. Students wishing to undertake the optional industrial placement will be required to successfully complete all stage 1 modules. The Industrial Placement is assessed by the completion of the Industrial Placement Report.
