This is a research degree requiring an original and significant contribution to knowledge in the field of learning analytics. It provides an opportunity for graduates to acquire high-level research skills and substantially deepen their knowledge in this area. This course has been developed as a response to a global talent gap for people with data science knowledge, as identified and reported by the McKinsey Global Institute study (2011). The study predicted a shortfall by 2018 of nearly 200,000 data scientists and 1.5 million managers with the capability to make decisions using big data in the United States alone. The dramatic growth of data in every conceivable industry, from oceanography to market research, presents another major driving force in generating unprecedented global demand for data science skills.
