Business with Business Analytics

Are you looking to complement your undergraduate studies with a business-focused master's degree that will enhance your employability? Do you want to explore the latest techniques for analysing 'big data' in order to improve an organisation's decision making? This course develops broad business skills while also offering a specialist pathway in business analytics that starts after the first semester. Specialist modules cover topics like business intelligence and marketing metrics. The course culminates in either a master's dissertation or, if you prefer, a consultancy project where you'll tackle an issue faced by a real client. Throughout the course there's a focus on self-development and employability. There is no requirement to have studied business or business analytics at undergraduate level. The course is covered by the prestigious AACSB accreditation for Newcastle Business School, which was 'Business School of the Year' at The Times Higher Education Awards 2015.

Entry requirements

This course is for people who want a two-year master's qualification in business to complement any type of study at undergraduate level, in order to boost employability. The business analytics specialism will build on previous studies in any quantitative/science subject.
