Imperial College Business School are proud to offer a highly sought-after MSc Business Analytics in the growing field of data science and analytics.
With the widespread discussion of analytics in a business application, our MSc Business Analytics, both on-campus and online delivery modes, have been featured in the international press this month.
Data science is the big draw in business schools
In the Financial Times, Jonathan Moules looked at the demand for degrees in data science as employers seek skilled analysts.
He examined how programmes specialising in data science is booming, which is driven by excitement about the potential of data analysis in business. He referred to the Graduation Management Council who reported a 74% increased demand in big data courses last year. Jonathan wrote in the article: "Demand for big data courses is driven by an increase in lucrative job opportunities advertised for people with such qualifications…"
Jonathan interviewed Sarah Laouiti, a current MSc Business Analytics student. She said:
I will definitely feel better prepared for the future world of work with a big data degree on my CV. I don’t know what jobs will survive in the future but I am sure that those that do will involve using data.
Imperial Launches Online-Only Master’s in Business Analytics
We are very excited about the upcoming launch of our MSc Business Analytics (online delivery, part-time), and TopMBA shares the same sentiment.
This global publication profiled the new programme in detail, and highlighted that it “will have the same core curriculum as the full-time, on-campus course, but will be delivered entirely online.”
The article feature quoted from Mark O’Shea, current student of the on-campus programme who said:
Kalyan Talluri, Programme Director, spoke about the value of the MSc Business Analytics to students’ future careers. With the increasing influence of emerging technologies, he explained that it is important for business professionals, regardless of industry, to be equipped with data analytic skills to operate in this new environment.
I firmly believe that technology will disrupt all industries in the near future, and being equipped with the right combination of business knowledge and tech skills will be vital.
