Program Description

MSc Business Intelligence and Analytics

The MSc Business Intelligence Analytics course is ideal for students with numerical backgrounds who have an interest in developing an in-depth specialist knowledge and a critical understanding of the key aspects of data management and cyber security.

Students will develop an understanding of the new tools available to apply correct statistical techniques for decision making. You will develop the required skills to communicate your findings in ways that non-data scientists will understand.

The University of Law Business School is an institutional member of Amazon Web Services Educate. This provides tutors and students of the MSc Business Intelligence and Analytics with access to the best collaboration tools, content training and AWS technology for cloud-related learning. Upon graduation, you will be fully equipped with the practical skills needed for a technology career. Students also have access to the AWS Educate Job Board for seeking technology jobs and internships.

You can expand your study experience by rotating across our campus locations in London and Berlin. During your time at ULaw Business School, you can complete modules at alternative campus locations, returning to your ‘home’ campus to complete your final module. Visa restrictions and study conditions may apply, however you are supported throughout the rotation process. Contact us (study@law.ac.uk) for more information about the "Global Rotation option".

From the 4th Term (9 months of study), students may choose, subject to any applicable visa requirements, to undertake a work placement instead of a dissertation or project. The work placement is for 9 months. Students must complete 600 hours of work.
