In the digital economy, being able to make decisions informed by data is not optional – it is essential. Organisations that make decisions based on data simply perform better.

The online Business Analytics programme provides you with the tools you need to put data to work, enabling you to:

  • set up experiments
  • collect data
  • learn from data
  • make decisions to how to navigate the organisational, legal and ethical issues involved in data-based decision making.

The programme teaches widely used frameworks of business analytics: biases, experimentation, descriptive analytics, prescriptive analytics, predictive analytics.

You will then implement the frameworks you have learned through assignments. You will join a global and diverse group of participants in the discussion boards where you share your perspectives on the issues being discussed with other participants and seek their views.

Taking place over 11 weeks, the learning journey for this programme will be composed from a combination of video lectures, live webinars, assignments, Q&A sessions and discussions. At the end there will also be follow-up with participants after they have completed their assignments.

This programme is being delivered in collaboration with EMERITUS Institute of Management.
