Overview

The  Business and Management (Business Analytics) programme at the University of Essex Online is designed for professionals who want to understand the uses of data within marketing, sales, customer service, market development, finance and much more. 

It will increase your confidence working with different types of data as well as give you a grounding in general management techniques.

This focused course explores many of the key areas of business analytics and business management, including:

  • the theory underpinning data and knowledge management
  • the applications of statistics in contemporary management and decision making
  • the craft of visualisation and when, what and how to think about visualisation decisions
  • the need for rigour, precision and ethical concern when collecting, organising and using data

Your future

This degree is ideal for anyone looking to bring a solid grounding in data analysis to their future career, whether within their capacity as a manager, business owner or C-level executive, or within a data specific role such as data officer, finance analyst, marketing analyst or more. 

With businesses increasingly relying on the data they gather to serve their customers better than their competitors do, the skills and knowledge gained will be invaluable to any growing business.
