You will also become experienced in the use of industry-standard Business Analytics and Business Intelligence software SAS, helping you to positively contribute and lead companies in improving their business intelligence.
There is currently an increasing demand in industry for skilled specialists who can manage and interpret data from business information technology systems. The combination of computing skills and business knowledge taught on the course enables you to enter a diverse range of careers in areas such as business analysis, analytics consultant, statistical programmer, statistical analyst, SAS programmer, data management analyst and research analyst.
