The course will develop data and business analytics professionals who can help their employers climb the pyramid of analytical literacy. Graduates will have the skills to gain competitive advantage based on analytical insight into business, scientific and other types of data.
Specialists with relevant expertise and knowledge of advanced tools and technologies, as well as the ability to understand and implement state-of-the-art solutions are needed in order to address practical problems that businesses and organisations are already facing and will face in the future. To address the shortage of qualified professionals in the areas of data analytics and data science, this course was designed in partnership with the SAS Institute. Teaching methods include hands-on content from experts in their respective areas.
The course provides an excellent opportunity to enter the dynamically expanding area of predictive analytics and data science and is ideal for anyone with a first degree in maths, physics or other discipline with a sound grounding in statistics.
“The course gave me structured knowledge which helped me to understand the industrial applications and secure a career in this field.”
Arvind Shah, graduate
