What will I learn?

Skilled business analysts are highly valued in industries across the globe. The skills to explore and interpret big data and uncover hidden value from multiple data sources can assist businesses in making intelligent and informed choices that enhance profitability.

Business Analytics focuses on the systematic collection of data and development of data sets, data analysis through statistical and other techniques, and most importantly, the interpretation and effective communication of insights gained from data to inform strategic organisational decisions.

What you will study

In this major you gain the skills you need in Business Analytics to succeed in the world of big data. You will learn how to analyse large volumes of data to support decision making across all areas of business. You will gain an understanding of data management concepts and processing of relational data with Structured Query Language (SQL), the concepts of data confidentiality and security, modelling techniques to analyse contemporary finance and economics issues, and techniques that can be used to measure marketing effectiveness.

This degree

You will undertake a foundation year that covers all core disciplines of business, giving you a solid understanding of issues facing organisations today. From your second year, you will major in Business Analytics and develop the skills to become a strategic business problem solver and be an essential part of decisions made across the entire business lifecycle.
