Course Summary

The MSc Business Analysis & Consulting has been developed to equip you with the practical, evaluative and analytical skills to allow you, as a future manager or consultant, to influence and develop strategy and performance within organisations.

You will learn the key quantitative business analysis methods necessary to evaluate performance. In addition, you'll learn how to use business models to support the development of strategy for organisations and to help them to monitor and measure strategic processes.
Simultaneously, you will develop the key skills of business consulting, which are applicable to any organisation.

The work placements form a vital component of this course. Many of our students spend an invaluable three weeks in January embedded in the analytical function of their host organisation.

In addition, many MSc projects are carried out for an external organisation. You will spend the summer months working on a project of importance to their clients. The aim is to gain direct experience in applying the concepts and theories studied on the course.

Modules

The class will consist of three key elements: 1. A series of semi- or unstructured business problems, typically introduced by a manager from an outside organisation. The business problems will typically relate to a topic/technique recently covered in one of the other modules. 2. Experience is augmented, and integrated with, the rest of the course by a series of workshops on directly related topics that will provide guidance on key skills development. 3. A period of 3 weeks spent as an apprentice business analyst in an organisation.
