The increase in the volume, variety, and velocity of data creates opportunities for businesses to improve decision making and develop new data driven products and services.
The programme is built around the three core areas needed to succeed in analytics: business knowledge, statistics, and computing.
This includes modules focusing on the application of analytics in core business functions such as marketing and human resources, as well as modules focusing on developing and applying technical skills such as advanced analytics and machine learning, data management, and data driven decision making.
In total, students will study eight modules in addition to pre-course training and a final dissertation project. The dissertation project will involve the application of the business, technical, and statistical skills learnt during the taught modules.
The programme will include an induction course, where pre-course training in key statistics and computer skills will ensure students from a range of backgrounds have the necessary skills to undertake the course.
The Business Analytics programme at Queen's University Belfast will appeal to students who intend to pursue a career in a business analytics related field, such as data science, business intelligence, consultancy, informatics, or decision intelligence
