**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, 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 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, Operations Management, Applied Data Science, Creating and Leading Enterprise, Strategic Management, Data Management and Digital Business and Econometrics.
