Course Introduction

Companies need people who can take data and transform it into a powerful strategic asset. This specialisation provides a rigorous, practical foundation in the key skills needed to unlock the value of data, and an in-depth understanding of how companies can use data to make decisions and improve business performance. Business Analytics (with specialisation in Management Science) is taught by UCL School of Management (in conjunction with UCL Computer Science). It combines modules that explore how data and analytics are transforming key areas of business (decision-making, strategy, marketing, operations) with modules that provide the mathematical and computational skills needed to make effective use of the latest business analytics tools. Business Analytics requires a combination of management insight, strong quantitative and analytical skills, and an understanding of the technology required to handle data at scale. Graduates from this new programme will be likely to find employment in global companies and high-growth businesses, finance and banking organisations, and consulting firms.
