Description

Course Overview

This diploma equips graduates with the analytical and commercial know-how to turn data into actionable solutions to real-world problems.

Developed by LSE, it prepares you for a quantitative career in business analytics. It can also prepare you for postgraduate study in the field.

Studying this diploma, you will understand:

  • The techniques and subject matter of applied statistics.
  • How to perform independent data analysis: selecting appropriate statistical methods for a given situation and drawing appropriate conclusions following empirical analysis to form the basis of managerial decision-making.
  • How to communicate analytical results effectively within a commercial context.

Career Opportunities:

As the world becomes ever more data-driven, analytical skills are in high demand but very short supply. Few companies are exploiting quantitative techniques to their full potential, often due to a lack of in-house expertise.

By pursuing study in business analytics, graduates will be highly sought-after by employers as the race to gain a competitive edge in the data arena intensifies. From asset management to pharmaceuticals, retail to insurance, the future is bright for any aspiring data scientist.

This diploma could also help you to gain entry to master’s courses in this field.
