MASTER OF Business Analytics

Join the next generation of data savvy business professionals skilled in translating data to solve global problems.

Continuing business disruption has created an unprecedented demand for data analysis capabilities. This online program is designed for business professionals of the future, this innovative program encourages a new take on data. You’ll gain a unique ability to speak the language of different organisational functions to bridge gaps and transform direction through data.

Drawing on business, data science and philosophy insights, you’ll gain a hybrid, holistic understanding of business analytics and their application. With a key focus on responsible use of artificial intelligence (AI), ethics and strategy, you’ll learn how to interpret analytics for social, cultural and environmental business opportunities.

Small class sizes provide valuable opportunities for online collaboration. You’ll join a diverse virtual community, draw on industry case studies and enjoy tailored professional development opportunities. In your final year of study, you’ll complete a team-based project that addresses real business problems or social issues.

If you have technical background in computing, IT or statistics, our Master of Data Science may be the program for you. While both programs address the function of data analytics, the Master of Data Science provides technical expertise, while the Master of Business Analytics will teach you how and why to make business decisions using data.

Admission Requirement / Eligibility Criteria

At UQ, we use a 7 point grading scale, where a 4 is a pass and 7 is the highest grade. When assessing your qualifications, we will convert the grade you received in your previous studies to our grading scale. This sometimes involves recalculating your GPA.

Different institutions calculate GPAs with different methods. When calculating your GPA, we may exclude certain non-academic subjects and include all failing grades.

Our GPA equivalency guide can be used as a guide to help you find the minimum UQ GPA equivalencies for the country or region where you completed your bachelor's degree.

If your GPA doesn't meet the minimum requirement for the program you're interested in, you may receive an articulation offer, which could allow you to progress to the master's degree when you meet the GPA requirements.
