About this course

The Bachelor of Science (Business Analytics) degree programme is an inter-disciplinary undergraduate degree programme offered by the School of Computing with participation from the Business School, Faculty of Engineering, Faculty of Science, and Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. This is a four-year direct honours programme which offers a common two-year broad-based inter-disciplinary curriculum where all students will read modules in Mathematics, Statistics, Economics, Accounting, Marketing, Decision Science, Industrial and Systems Engineering, Computer Science and Information Systems.

Students in their third and fourth years of study may choose elective modules from two lists of either functional or methodological elective modules. Functional elective modules span business functions or sectors of marketing, retailing, logistics, healthcare, etc. Methodological elective modules include those related to big data techniques, statistics, text mining, data mining, social network analysis, econometrics, forecasting, operations research, etc. In sum, these elective modules span the most exciting and challenging areas of business analytics practice in the industry today.

Objective

The emerging phenomena of Big Data - large pools of data sets that can be captured, communicated, aggregated, stored, and analyzed - has presented companies and organisations with trillions of bytes of information about their customers, suppliers, and operations. Millions of networked sensors are also embedded in various devices such as mobile phones and tablet computers to sense, create, and communicate data.

Big data is now part of every industry sector and function of the global economy. It is increasingly the case that modern economic activity, innovation, and growth have to take place with data and the related analytic processes, methods and outputs. The discipline of business analytics (BA) enables companies and organisations to realise the full potential of data generated from various business processes, sources and devices, thus improving their speed and effectiveness in generating business insights and intelligence for optimal decision making purposes.

Learning objectives of the Bachelor of Science (Business Analytics) degree programme are:

  • To understand the conceptual and methodological foundations of analytical methods and techniques for business analytics, as referenced from disciplines such as computing, engineering, science, mathematics, statistics, business and economics
  • To appreciate and understand current business analytics problems in the industry worldwide and be able to identify and resolve practically relevant business analytics questions and issues
  • To apply appropriate analytic tools and techniques to resolve complex business analytics problems in various industry sectors and domains
  • To cultivate the practices of independent and group learning on the part of students that will prepare them to function effectively for diverse careers in business analytics
