Business analytics degrees abroad

Businesses around the world are collecting and analyzing more data than ever before. As a business analytics student, you’ll learn how to use this data to help businesses and other organizations make important decisions and drive change.

Business analytics programs can cover a range of subjects including mathematics, programming, statistics and business management. During your studies, you’ll find how to safely and ethically collect and analyze data in order to find patterns that businesses can use to resolve problems, target customers, or forecast for the future.

By choosing to study business analytics abroad, you’ll broaden your options and have a wide variety of programs to choose from. You could access the best courses available from around the world, and see how other countries tackle the use of data.

Business analytics program structure

Business analytics is available in a range of countries at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. You can earn a BSc over three or four years, but some universities offer business analytics as a BA qualification. There is usually very little difference between the two programs, but the BSc may include more modules in areas like mathematics and statistics.

If you study business analytics in the USA, you can choose it as your major concentration. You’ll study general studies and other minor subjects alongside business analytics modules over four years.

If you already hold a bachelor’s degree in a related field and want to improve your employability, you can study for a master’s over one or two years. MSc programs in business analytics are more widely available than bachelor’s courses and are a popular option for those with business degrees that want to improve and broaden their knowledge.

Teaching on a business analytics program can include lectures and seminars, as well as time spent in computer labs and workshops. You’ll be assessed through a combination of things like essays, presentations, exams and project work.

The curriculum and content of each business analytics program will differ based on a number of factors, but some of the most common modules you could study include:

  • Business statistics
  • Data analysis
  • Operations management
  • Optimization
  • Business forecasting
  • Programming
  • Business systems
  • Analytics system technology
