MSc Business Analytics


MSc Business Analytics will equip the learners with the techniques and analytical tools required to understand and engage with complex data with the aim of enhancing business performance. This programme has been designed to help learners gain the skills and qualification needed to pursue a career in business analytics. Business analytics is an area where employers are finding it increasingly difficult to recruit graduates with the right qualifications and skills. There is an increasing demand for skills, but also a significant gap between current graduates’ analytical skills and employers’ needs.

By completing this programme, learners will improve their employability skills by gaining the expertise required to analyse data, improve decision-making, enhance critical thinking and help companies gain a competitive advantage. Moreover, the programme enables learners to enhance their knowledge of core themes such as business intelligence, information systems theories and some of the related techniques, information systems strategy, digital innovation, and fundamentals of project management. Furthermore, learners will be able to gain the necessary research skills as part of the final dissertation module - Business Research Project - to pursue further studies at doctoral level, if they choose to do so.

How will I be assessed?

The assessment methods used within the programme varies from a module to another. The main assessment methods used within the programme are Assignment (Report, Critical reflection/Journal, etc.), Essay, Presentation (Oral or Poster). However, some modules may expect to take tests, exams or hands-on activity. Students on the MSc programme will have to submit a dissertation as part of their Business Research Project Module.
