Who is this course for
Right now, according to McKinsey & Co, there are 140,000–190,000 posts in data analytics that companies cannot fill. This number is forecast to grow until 2020, with an average of 56,000 new big data jobs created each year. With a skills gap like this, the opportunities are boundless.
The advanced skills and understanding you’ll develop on our MSc course can take you into data analytics roles across a range of industries, in both the public and private sectors. You could apply for jobs like SQL data analyst, data quality analyst, insight data analyst, business intelligence analyst and statistical data analyst, to name a few.
You’ll have the specialist support of our careers service from day one, and for three years after you leave us. Between the services available through the Department of Computing and Mathematics and the University’s Career Service, you’ll have access to everything from employer events and careers fair to employability skills workshops and dedicated advisors.
