Business Analytics

The course prepares graduates to understand the context, importance and relevance of big data problems facing a business and solve them using a variety of statistical, operational research and machine learning techniques. The overriding objective of the programme is to train students to solve business problems and obtain actionable business insight using analytics. Combining academic rigour and practical relevance, the programme is a careful balance of teaching and learning, individual and group work. Case study methodology and class-based discussions are used to strengthen the conceptual, analytical and problem solving skills of the participants in real situations. In addition, there are regular seminars by external expert speakers.
