  • Develop quantitative, analytical and ICT skills to carry out data and financial analysis tasks.

  • Communicate and interpret the output of their analysis.

  • Exhibit curiosity, in a critical manner, in evaluating analysis undertaken by themselves or others.

The MBS in Finance and Business Analytics enables participants to develop quantitative, analytical and ICT skills to carry out data and financial analysis tasks in their current employment or as an initial stepping off point for a career as financial analyst/data analyst. It has been developed in response to demand from companies for specialist graduates with advanced skills and knowledge in areas such as statistics, data modelling, business intelligence and financial analysis. This course will also enable existing employees to acquire key skills and competencies to help them advance their career and make a greater contribution in their workplace. It will serve as a platform for knowledge expansion and the acquisition of new skills and competencies thereby developing a new mind set amongst employees in preparation for the demands of the ever-changing business environment.
