The global economy is changing. Businesses are becoming more complex and interconnected. Organisations are generating and capturing trillions of bytes of information about their customers, suppliers and operations. And the technology, tools and platforms for analysing this data are evolving incredibly fast. This explosion of complexity, data, and technology is disrupting industries and creating new opportunities.

But understanding the technology alone isn’t enough.

The world’s leading companies need people who understand how management best practices are evolving to adjust to this new deeply complex, interconnected and data-driven world.

People who can take data and transform it into a powerful strategic asset – people who deeply understand data, its potential and its limitations, who can frame complex data-driven business problems, analyse data with the right statistical techniques, employ the latest analytics tools and methods, and communicate analytics results to business executives, partners and customers.

The UCL Business Analytics provides a rigorous, practical foundation in these critical skills and provides a platform for careers with global companies and high-growth businesses tackling world-scale problems.
