In the modern world, information is everywhere – from the daily stream of financial data emerging from the world’s markets to worldwide internet traffic, personal health records, or simply your local newsagent’s sales figures for the last week.

Understanding this vast array of data is one of the key challenges we currently face and the career opportunities are vast. Almost every industry you can imagine has a need for specialists in data analysis – from medical and pharmaceuticals, to retail and finance.
