The MSc in Business Analytics programme will help you generate and capture greater competitiveness in data-driven business.
Our Business Analytics programme is designed to provide a foundation to those who will determine the scope and direction of data analytics research within their organisation, and communicate the research outcomes to the ultimate decision-makers.
Our graduates are trained to participate in the strategic management process, improve the organisation’s financial performance and help design the effective measures of performance of an organisation for which evidence-based data become a strategic asset in the decision-making process.
Therefore, the primary goal is to provide an insight into business data analytics and prepare the students to develop the set of skills and attitudes that will evolve into effective leadership skills.
Typical backgrounds of students are Accounting, Biology, Business Administration/Studies, Computer Science, Economics, Engineering, Environmental Studies, Finance, Hospitality Management, Human Resources, Information Systems/Technology, Management, Marketing, Mathematics and Psychology.
The main purpose of the master's in Business Analytics programme is to develop a comprehensive set of skills and to encourage the positive attributes that are essential to becoming a successful business analyst.
The master's degree is committed not only to imparting specialist skills, but also to developing the so-called "soft skills” which are important in influencing people and organisations.
As well as obtaining effective and persuasive communication skills, you will also learn about ethics-related issues, which are another key ingredient to responsible leadership.
The MSc in Business Analytics starts online in the summer before the beginning of term 1 with three pre-courses which ensure that every student has the minimum specific background required by all other modules.
These subjects are key elements of your course and you are strongly encouraged to complete the modules before you arrive at Cass in order to avoid being at a disadvantage.
Python and R tutorials run in small groups during the induction week and the first two weeks of Term 1. These tutorials assume that the students are very familiar with the online material from the Introduction to Python and Introduction to R Programming.
