A practically-focused programme equipping you with in-demand data analytics skills

Our online, part-time MSc Business Analytics is modelled on our full-time on-campus programme with greater flexibility and managerial course options designed specifically for online students. You can choose to complete the programme in two to three years* depending on your work schedule and learning pace, graduating with the same degree as on-campus students.

This programme is designed for professionals with no programming or prior analytics experience; however some quantitative experience or background is required for admission.

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 online exams, individual coursework and group work. Case studies and group activities will be used to strengthen your conceptual, analytical and problem-solving skills.


With the option to graduate in two to three years*, you have the freedom to customise the programme according to your needs.

Your first year will provide you with the mathematical and computational foundations of analytics. You will have two one-week on-campus periods in your first year when you will be expected to visit London for workshops and classes and to experience life at Imperial.

For the remainder of the programme, you will focus on the application of knowledge and skills learned in your first year to real-world situations in industries such as healthcare, logistics and supply chain, and finance, or functional areas such as retail marketing, digital marketing, 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.
