Data is everywhere. It drives businesses, the economy and everyday life. In a growing market, having the knowledge and skills to analyse and understand data will make you a valuable member of any team in a range of industries.
A Bachelor of Data Analytics not only prepares you for the real world, but it also equips you with the technical and analytical skills needed to succeed in the workforce.
In this programme, you will explore core analytical, communication, interpersonal, organisational, and technical skills needed in a variety of business, organisational and scientific contexts.
Combining business analytics, data mining, data visualisation and the latest software, this programme will help you to acquire the skills needed to make better data-driven decisions and to influence change within any organisation.
You will gain a solid understanding of global business concepts and learn through industry-relevant tools, including Tableau, Power BI and Java, which are used to make strategic decisions and support organisational success.
When you graduate, you will be able to apply the skills you have learned in a global context, influencing statistics and operations research, systems design and implementation, as well as the implementation of business intelligence and analytics in organisations.
