The aim of the course is to give students a solid quantitative foundation alongside practical problem-solving techniques. Much of your learning involves real-life scenarios using case studies, individual and team consulting-based assignments, presentations and software tools. Much of the coursework takes the form of consulting-style cases, some done in small teams and including presentations.
The core of the course is formed by four analytics units covering fundamental toolkit areas of decision sciences, applied operational research and statistics. The approach is to consider application of these analytical methodologies and toolkits to common problem areas across business and management. You then chose four other units from a broad range of options, according to your interests, background and intended career directions.
Our next open day for postgraduate taught study will take place on Wednesday, 23 November 2016. It's a great opportunity to come and see us and experience what it is like to study at Alliance MBS.
At our event, we'll have an alumni panel who'll be describing their experiences and how their course helped them in their careers, a taster lecture and the chance to meet academic and admissions staff and current students.
Further details about registration and the schedule for the open day will be posted here soon.
Take a look at the open day programme from the last event.
