Business analysts not only need an excellent general awareness of how businesses work, they also need to be able to apply advanced analytical methods to deal with specific management issues.
Technology is at the heart of all modern business. Organisations need business graduates who are able to bridge this gap with skills in business technology.
Teaching focuses on practical as well as theoretical skills, including workshops and computer-based lab sessions while guest lecturers contribute the perspective of industry, complementing that of academic staff. Real business issues will be addressed through assignments with students being asked to put forward genuine and realistic solutions.
The career prospects for Business Analysis & Technology graduates are excellent. Business analysts can be found in organisations as diverse as Procter & Gamble, The Royal Bank of Scotland and Tesco. The combination of business and practical software skills is also highly attractive to consultancy companies.
Business Analysis & Technology can be studied in combination with a range of business subjects at Strathclyde.
