Increase your confidence working with data and develop your managerial skills for the fast-paced business world with this specialist Masters degree.

  • The theory underpinning data and knowledge management
  • The applications of statistics in contemporary management and decision making
  • The craft of visualisation and when, what and how to think about visualisation decisions
  • The need for rigour, precision and ethical concern when collecting, organising and using data
  • Towards the end of your studies you will undertake a Business and Management Research Project into the topic of your choice, allowing you to take a deeper look into a specific area of business analytics.
