Overview

The Applied Quantitative Methods programme from  Manchester Metropolitan University  focuses on the development and application of key quantitative methods and analytical techniques. It focuses on the use of quantitative methods within real world contexts and a key aim is to develop graduates' career-ready skills in this field.

Career

The programme will be a considerable asset to postgraduates wishing to pursue a career involving quantitative research skills within a diverse range of organisations within the public/private/ voluntary sectors, businesses, academia, think tanks, research centres, and Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs).
