The programme is suitable for graduates from a wide variety of disciplines including Business Studies, Engineering, Computer Science and Maths who would like to use their aptitude for mathematics/computerised problem solving to address business problems.
Business Analytics is a branch of applied mathematics that uses quantitative and computer techniques to optimise decision-making in business, taking advantage of the large amounts of data now available and meeting the challenges of a dynamic environment. It is a technically focused programme directed at management applications, not a general course about management. This programme is comparable to a Masters degree (typically MSc) in Operational Research (UK) or Operations Research (USA).
