A practically focused online degree, designed to create data analysts of the future

Our two year, part-time MSc Business Analytics (online delivery, part-time) is modelled on our full-time on-campus programme with an almost exact replica of the curriculum.  It allows you to graduate with the same programme certificate, without interrupting your career.

Online delivery

We have carefully designed this programme for online delivery via The Hub, our bespoke learning environment, ensuring students receive a high-quality and supportive experience which is comparable to our on-campus programmes. You will be assessed through exams, individual coursework and group work. Case studies and group activities will be used to strengthen your conceptual, analytical and problem-solving skills.


First year

You will complete your core modules, which provide the mathematical and computational foundations of analytics in the first year of your programme.

There are two on-campus periods in your first year where you will need to be in London for coding bootcamps, revision and exams. For September 2021 entry, there will be a one week visit in December 2021 and a one week visit in July 2022.

Second year

In your second year, you will focus on the application of the knowledge and skills learned in year one to real-world verticals such as healthcare, logistics and supply chain, finance or functional areas such as marketing, digital and human resources.

You will be expected to complete 10 to 15 hours of study a week. The number of hours may vary depending on your assignment deadlines, quizzes and exams.
