Organisations of all sizes must analyse complex business data to remain competitive. Business analytics helps to predict market trends and improve business processes. It empowers managers to make strategic decisions to improve performance in areas such as product development, operations, marketing, sales and supply chain management.

Our MSc Business Analytics develops your analytical skills so you can solve complex business problems. You’re trained to organise, integrate and interpret data so you can make insightful forecasts into all aspects of business operation and implement appropriate actions.

You cover topics such as:

  • statistics and forecasting

  • global supply networks
  • economic theory
  • business management

Our range of optional modules gives you the opportunity to specialise in a variety of complementary business, management and marketing subjects.
