Our BSc (Hons) Business Analytics course addresses the growing demand for skilled graduates who can use ‘big data’ to help businesses make better-informed decisions and manage both information and digital innovations to maximise performance. With the advent of ‘big data’ and rapidly increasing automation of jobs, analytics is used all around us. The World Economic Forum predicts that data analytics will be the main driver of what is called the fourth industrial revolution, impacting all sectors of the economy. The Loughborough BSc Business Analytics gives you a thorough understanding of the main opportunities and challenges brought by data driven, evidence-based decision making in various types of organisations and industries, and helps you understand how to integrate this knowledge with general business and management skills. Our BSc Business Analytics course will equip you with sought-after skills for a variety of career paths with critical levels of responsibility. At Loughborough we excel at teaching quantitative skills and decision sciences, thus we emphasise management science methods, data analysis and performance evaluation, forecasting and simulation, computer programming, and using databases for analytics. During your studies you will sharpen your skills in practical projects, presentations, and group work, equipping you with valuable transferable skills as well. The programme is designed to open up a range of highly rewarding career options in areas such as business development, consultancy, financial services, marketing and retail analytics, healthcare analytics, and even public services. Skills for employability is a key part of the Loughborough experience and can really boost your job prospects and this degree has two modules specifically built in to help you develop your study and employability skills. There are also specific modules in entrepreneurship to help those with aspirations to start or develop their own businesses.
