Course Summary

This distance learning course focuses on applying advanced analytical methods to business problems to help managers make better decisions.

You will develop an understanding of key quantitative business analysis methods.

You will also be introduced to business models used to support the development of strategy for organisations and to help them to monitor and measure strategic processes.

Moreover, you will develop key consulting skills to effectively support management.


Each class includes two pieces of assessment. Around half of these will be assignments and the other half will be by examination at local centres.


The MSc project is the most substantial and independent piece of work you'll carry out during the course. You will contact your client and your supervisors and manage the whole relationship with them. The projects vary but they typically involve understanding the real-life problem through problem structuring, identifying the data requirements, review of the relevant domain literature, making methodological choices based on arguments from the methodology literature, data collection, appropriate data analysis and modelling, developing and presentation of findings and recommendations.
