Overview

As you progress on the Data Science for Business (Online) course from University of Stirling , you’ll develop highly sought-after skills, including:

  • An understanding of the industrial and scientific relevance of analytics
  • The ability to apply data-led insights in strategic decision-making
  • Business acumen and advanced management know-how

Real-world case studies and a focus on current business issues give you the opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of the use of data analytics in solving the challenges you'll encounter in the workplace.

The entire course is studied online, enabling you to fit your studies around personal and professional demands. You’ll learn through a combination of video lectures, live webinars and course materials that are easy to access wherever you are, whenever it works for you. 

The intuitive learning hub also offers collaborative tools that make it simple to connect with tutors and fellow students, creating a rich online environment built around human-centred learning.

Over the duration of the course you'll:

  • Acquire knowledge, skills and experience for a successful career in data driven roles
  • Understand the applications and implications of data analytics in organisations across different sectors
  • Develop knowledge and skills of data analytics tools and techniques for business decision making
