“Business analytics” is about the conversion of business data into valuable information through the use of statistical techniques and advanced software. Combining such analysis with intuition can provide insights to businesses and public sector organisations for the achievement of their respective objectives. “Big Data” refers to the storage and analysis of datasets that are so large and complex that they become difficult to process through standard database management tools. Big Data is associated with the massive amounts of data that are now being generated in business and in other fields, often in real time, through for example: information sensing mobile devices, radio frequency identification readers and wireless sensor networks.
This programme provides a strong foundation in empirical Business Analytics grounded in theory and applied in practice. The aim of the programme is to produce a professional capable of providing the business analytics expertise required by organisations to strengthen their strategic decision making processes and to produce a graduate with interpersonal and leadership qualities, underpinned by sound technical and business knowledge by using a range of learning approaches throughout the programme.
