Course Details

Applied Data Analytics MSc

Course Description

1 year full-time or 2-5 years part-time. Full-time students can also choose to take an optional placement. The aim of this course is to train data and business analytics professionals who can help their employers climb the pyramid of analytical literacy. It will also equip recent graduates with the skills to gain competitive advantage based on analytical insight into business, scientific and other types of data. It is an ideal second degree for recent graduates in maths or physics, who need to convert their skills and knowledge into a recognised Master's qualification that will allow them to enter the highly paid profession of data analysis. The skills shortage in this field was highlighted in a recent McKinsey report, which predicted that the United States alone faces a shortage of 140,000 to 190,000 people with analytical expertise, and 1.5 million managers and analysts with the skills to understand and make decisions.
