Course Description

Designed to meet increasing market demand, this postgraduate qualification will help professionals who have a passion to develop skills in the emerging field of data science.

In an increasingly digitised and data-driven working environment, the role of data, and the importance of those who can understand and use that data, is increasing every day.

The world of data science is a complex and ever changing field which requires maths, software engineering, statistics and communication skills. Improving organisational processes is a key objective in this field of work. This is done through providing informed and strategic recommendations on a range of business decisions.

Our MSc Applied Data Science for Business will provide an academically challenging and intellectually stimulating programme of study, and has been developed to be of particular relevance for those who have a business focus.
