MSc Business Analytics

Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University

In the MSc Business Analytics degree, you will obtain in-depth knowledge of data collection, selection and analysis. Rapid growth in the amount of available data is undoubtedly the major trend in today’s economic environment. It follows that companies’ needs for collecting, searching, classifying, synthesising and managing data are exploding. International Business School Suzhou’s MSc Business Analytics is designed for individuals who want to meet these needs of the Information Age.

This programme aims to provide business students with a deep understanding of the most up-to-date data-processing methods (Machine Learning, Big Data Analysis) and supports them in becoming proficient users of a wide variety of software. These fundamental skills are then complemented with specialization modules in finance, marketing or management, depending on student’s educational background, career aspirations and interests. The teaching philosophy that we adopt is very practice-oriented and - after a full year of courses - students complete their training by a 6-month internship within a company.
