Why this course?

Our MSc in data analytics is designed to create rounded data analytics problem-solvers.

This course focuses on the uses of data analytics techniques within business contexts, making informed
decisions about appropriate technology to extract knowledge from data and understanding the theoretical
principles by which such technology operates.

You'll gain a comprehensive skill set that will enable you to work in a variety of sectors using a blended
learning approach that combines theory, intensive practice and industrial engagement.

Strathclyde's MSc in data analytics is unique by bringing together essential skills from three departments,
Management Science, Mathematics & Statistics, and Computer & Information Sciences (CIS), in order to
address the needs of a fast-growing industry.

This collaboration avoids the narrow interpretation of this subject offered by competitor institutions and
presents significant opportunities for businesses to recruit data analytics experts with a high-level expertise
and knowledge.

What youll study

The course will have a duration of 1 year, with two semesters of classes (120 credits in total) followed by an
MSc dissertation project (60 credits) during the summer.

The class Data Analytics in Practice (20 credits) will be run over both semesters to provide you with a
practical environment to apply methodological learnings from other classes into challenging projects from
industry.

Semester 1
Semester 1 will additionally consist of five 10-credit core modules as listed under 'Course Content' which will
provide the technical background to students. The contributions in Semester 1 will be split evenly between
three departments.

This semester is designed to provide you with the fundamental technical analytics knowledge from all three
departments.

Computer & Information Sciences courses will cover core techniques including machine learning and data
mining as well as data visualisation and big data platforms
Mathematics courses will ensure you gain strong computational skills while establishing a broad knowledge
of statistical tools essential for analytics
Management Science courses will build the foundations of business skills including problem structuring as
well as decision analysis, in addition to providing essential practical skills

Semester 2
Semester 2 will additionally consist of a 10-credit core module as well as 40 credits worth of elective modules.
To ensure breadth of knowledge, you'll be required to choose electives from at least two departments. This
semester is designed to extend your core skills and provide you with opportunities through a broad range of
electives to specialise in areas that you are particularly interested to excel.

The only technical core class will provide you with a thorough theoretical and practical understanding of
optimisation techniques essential for data analytics, whereas each of the three departments will offer four to
five elective courses, the majority of which are accessible to everyone on the course without any prerequisites.
The final component of the MSc course will be a summer dissertation project, which can be completed either
through a client-based project or a desk-based research project, depending on your interests. You will submit
your dissertation in September to complete your degree requirements (pending any resits).

Work placement

You will have optional opportunities to complete your MSc summer dissertation projects in client-based
projects, where a number of host organisations will be arranged by the department. These projects will be
normally unpaid, however, all costs such as travel and accommodation will be covered by the host
organisation if out of town.

Major projects

The taught modules on the programme introduce you to a variety of tools, techniques, methods and models.
However, the practical reality of applying analytical methods in business is often far removed from the
classroom. Working with decision-makers on real issues presents a variety of challenges.

For example, data may well be ambiguous and hard to come by, it may be far from obvious which data
analytics methods can be applied and managers will need to be convinced of the business merits of any
suggested solutions. While traditional teaching can alert students to such issues, understanding needs to be
reinforced by experience.

This is primarily addressed by the core module Data Analytics in Practice, which takes place over both
semesters. Every year, case studies and challenging projects are presented to our students by various
organisations.

Facilities

Strathclyde Business School (SBS) is one of the 76 triple-accredited business schools in the world, and is one
of the largest of its kind in Europe. SBS was also recently selected as the "Business School of the Year" in
Times Higher Education (THE) Awards."

The three departments involved in this course work together to provide a dynamic, fully-rounded and varied
programme of specialist and cross-disciplinary postgraduate course.

Analytics in Practice module, we host several presentations from external bodies.

case studies with various external organisations, and MSc projects.

There are also guest lectures and recruitment events throughout the year, as well as a number of career support
sessions that provide you with invaluable career information and generic job hunting skills such as CV writing
and how to handle interviews.

Graduates with an MSc in Hydrogeology are in very high demand as there is an expected shortage of
hydrogeologists that will continue for the next decade.

Additionally, throughout the world, the issue of water scarcity, water security, water economics and health and
sanitation all rely on high quality hydrogeology knowledge.
How much will I earn?
Starting salaries for a hydrogeologist typically range from 20,000 to 25,000 per year. Salaries for senior
hydrogeologists range from 30,000 to 45,000 per year, while experienced professionals and managers can
expect to earn 50,000 to 60,000 per year. Salaries tend to be higher in private companies/ consultancies than
in the public sector.*

Glasgow
Key facts
Study mode and duration:
MBA/PgDip: full-time - 12 months
Start date: September 2017

Why this course?

If you choose to study your MBA full-time in Glasgow over 12 months, you can expect a stimulating and
challenging experience.

Your year with us is an opportunity to stretch yourself to the maximum, to be challenged and inspired by the
faculty and your colleagues and to make lasting friendships around the globe.

At the end of the year youll have gained skills and abilities to help you realise your career aspirations. Studying
full-time allows you the opportunity to focus on the course rather than trying to juggle study and work.

Special features
The full-time course is 12 months - 10 months are spent taking part in classes, group-work and personal
development processes, and two months completing the MBA project
It allows you to take time to embark on life planning and in many cases reinventing or re-planning your career
There are a number of classes designed to identify your personal strengths and weaknesses
The course is intensive and relies heavily on teamwork throughout encouraging cooperation rather than
competition

As the full time MBA route of study is normally undertaken by those changing careers or considering starting up
their own business, the programme has a more formal, integrated careers development element.

Benefits of the full-time programme


As we require a minimum of three years' work experience (the average is over nine years) youll find your
colleagues have a wealth of experience which is a powerful resource that will prove invaluable.

Students come from a wide variety of industries, public service and voluntary agencies. Typically this has
included accounting and financial managers, consultants, engineers, IT specialists, and marketing managers but
also some people with very different perspectives, such as medical professionals, civil servants and military
officers.

The class has a maximum intake of around 60 course members from a variety of countries. Our strong belief is
by limiting the class size, youll interact more with academic staff and class-mates, making the overall MBA
experience highly participative and engaging.

Less than 1% of business schools in the world hold "triple accreditation", and Strathclyde is one of them. The 3
international accrediting bodies are:

The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business


The European Quality Improvement System
The Association of MBAs

To gain accreditation by one of these bodies is an achievement in itself. To gain accreditation by all three bodies
is a truly outstanding accomplishment and one we're proud of.
