This distance learning course focuses on the uses of data analytics techniques within business contexts, making informed decisions about appropriate technology to extract knowledge from data and understanding the theoretical principles by which such technology operates.
The qualification is unique by bringing together essential skills from three departments across the University in order to address the needs of a fast-growing industry. It's jointly delivered by:
Department of Management Science
Department of Mathematics and Statistics
Department of Computer and Information Sciences
This unique collaboration avoids the narrow interpretation of the subject offered by similar degrees and presents significant opportunities for businesses to recruit data analytics experts with high-level expertise and knowledge.
The aim of the PgCert in Data Analytics is to develop graduates who can use data analytics technology, understand the statistical principles behind the technologies and understand how to apply these technologies to solve business problems.
A second-class Honours degree, or equivalent, in mathematics, the natural sciences, engineering, or economics/finance. Applications from those with other degrees are also encouraged if you have demonstrated a good grasp of numerical/quantitative subjects.
