Programme Overview

The MSc in Applied Data Science and Analytics is a 2 Year part-time programme delivered entirely online.

Data Analytics is one of the fastest growing areas of IT, across a variety of organizations and industries, and remains mission critical for businesses as it turns information into an asset for deriving insight and making decisions. This reflects the need for companies to do business more smartly, enabled by business intelligence.

The course will focus on the knowledge and skills to select, apply and evaluate data science and big data analytics techniques to discover knowledge that can add value to a company. Students will gain both an in-depth theoretical understanding and practical hands-on experience, including implementing novel and emerging techniques. Participants will be kept abreast of current research and state of the art developments in data science related topics.
