Course summary

Why Business Data Analytics? Our Bachelor of Science in Business Data Analytics prepares business students with the requisite knowledge, skills and experience to create, analyse and manage data driven initiatives as well as associated business processes to facilitate decision making and large-scale business data analytics in organisations. The concept and importance of “data analytics” has been known for a while, but the last few years have seen a sizeable swell in interest and media attention. Recently, the ways in which social media companies use the data collected about their users have hit the headlines and has shown the enormous impact data analysis and usage has on our lives every day. How will I learn? You will learn through practical application and delivered lectures, workshops, seminars and group work sessions.

  • A degree in business data analytics would impart you with important transferable skills, such as data analysis, visualisation, data management, critical-thinking and problem-solving.
  • Open up opportunities across industries as data managers, data consultants, business analysts, data scientists, consumer and market knowledge managers, chief data officers, big data architects and business and marketing analysts.
  • The programme is designed to develop both technical and professional skills, technical in terms of data science, visualisation, database structures, and use of software – and professional skills in terms of the commercialisation of designed innovation and organisational decision making.
  • You’ll learn to operate in the spaces between the IT and business disciplines and obtain the skills to both innovate in the new economy and commercialise those innovations. On completion you’ll possess the capacity to absorb and re-combine knowledge from different disciplines and innovate for the advantage of your organisation.
What subjects will you cover? You’ll explore subjects such as Introduction to Data Analysis, Introduction to Business Analytics, Data visualisation, Applied Data Science, Data Analytics and creating value alongside Strategic Management and Economics. C​ompanies large or small in today's modern business environment are reliant on data to help inform strategy, make decisions and identify problems, challenges and opportunities. This is true for both online and offline companies, and the notion that organisations are 'data rich, but skills poor' holds true. Individuals in these organisations argue that they need graduates who can understand and analyse data to make informed business-related decisions. This course can help you do just that, sitting at the intersection between data analytical skills and business decision making. This is a new and rapidly expanding area of business and for many organisations data sits at the heart of it. This degree will open up opportunities in areas such as business consultancy, management, banking, project management, sales etc. If you want to learn about this subject from an enthusiastic team with industrial experience and academic expertise, then a course in this area could be right for you. ~ Dr Abdul Jabbar, Course Leader
