Business Analytics (Industry) BSc Hons
How can analysing data solve real-life problems? What does it mean to think statistically? If you’re numerate and analytically minded, this degree can help launch your career in industry, finance, the public sector, government or consulting. In fact, in any data-rich and technology-dependent organisation.
This is a four-year industry degree. You will learn techniques and approaches that help organisations plan and improve their decision-making process. We will teach you how to make forecasts and use data to understand complex behaviour. You’ll be introduced to operational and strategic business contexts. As part of a team, you will work on a project for an actual client in the Lancaster area.
In your second and final years you will study a set of compulsory project management modules, which will act as a ‘core' to help you put ideas into practice, gain employee support during organisational change initiatives, and improve your consultancy skills. You will also choose modules from specialist ‘tracks' if you wish. The Business Analytics track delivers the mathematical tools to develop practical, numerate and computer-based modelling.
The Operations, Logistics and Supply Chain Management track explores the problems faced by operations managers. It covers topics such as purchasing, inventory planning and risk analysis. Perhaps you want to learn more about designing and managing the computer-based systems of our digital economy. If so, the Information Systems specialism track is for you.
Your third year consists of a supervised placement in industry, with previous students joining companies such as IBM and Bosch. Roles in finance, support or operations allow you to see how processes and theories are used. This experience also provides valuable insight for your final year academic studies.
Truly modern organisations rely on sophisticated analysis and technology to perform effectively. We are proud to produce creative, technically competent and skilled graduates who can deliver these skills and more.
The University will use all reasonable effort to support you to find a suitable placement for your studies. While a placement role may not be available in a field or organisation that is directly related to your academic studies or career aspirations, all placement roles offer valuable experience of working at a graduate level and gaining a range of professional skills.
If you are unsuccessful in securing a suitable placement for your third year, you will be able to transfer to the equivalent non-placement degree scheme and would continue with your studies at Lancaster, finishing your degree after your third year. The University offers a range of shorter placement and internship opportunities for which you would be welcome to apply.
