Business Analytics

The main purpose of the programme is to develop a comprehensive set of skills and encourage positive attributes that are essential to becoming a successful business analyst.

The degree is committed not only to creating specialist skills, but also to developing the so-called "soft skills" aimed to influence people and organisations. Besides achieving effective and persuasive communication, the module leaders draw attention over ethics-related issues, which is another key ingredient to responsible leadership.
