SAS is the world’s leading analytics software vendor. We are pleased to work with University of Bradford on a curriculum that emphasises Data Analytics as foundational in modern business management. Programmes such as this, coupled with real-world project experience, provide students with the grounding required for careers in a data and analytics-driven world. Data and analytics are now ubiquitous, and the world is the students’ oyster in whichever direction their careers take them.
Learning and assessment
You will gain a range of knowledge and understanding specific to Finance and Business Analytics and personal transferable skills, which will improve and enhance their ability to excel at university and beyond.
To this end, teaching on the programme will be directed, supported and reinforced through a combination of formal lectures, staff/student led group discussions, personal research and guided self-study, tutorials, seminars and directed reading. These activities will all be further supported by the use of a virtual learning environment.
Generally, the programme will aim to integrate applied and theoretical knowledge with assessment processes that test both knowledge of the discipline and understanding of its application and limitations. To facilitate learning, lectures and seminars will typically utilise case studies and simulations. Sessions may be delivered weekly. Small Group sessions will use case studies and simulations with oral feedback given in class.
You will be guided to suitable primary and secondary data sources, and be required to conduct research and presentation exercises. Resources to support the teaching and learning activity will be provided on the University’s virtual learning environment.
As a student at University of Bradford School of Management you'll have the opportunity to study abroad at one of our partner institutions around the world.
This gives you international experience, exposure to a different culture and opportunities to network with students and academics at other leading business schools.
"My best memories at university so far are the ones I gathered in the trips and projects that the University of Bradford has organised: short-term study trips, exchange programs, entrepreneurship projects with partners from countries as far as Qatar, Bahrain and China. They all changed my perspective on the world and encouraged me to become a better informed, more sensible global citizen."
