Programme overview

The Postgraduate Certificate in Business Analytics (PGCertBusAn) will develop your knowledge and skills to enable you to investigate business challenges and then source, manipulate and analyse data to address issues, and inform the development of business strategies.

It will equip you for entry into or in advancing a career as a business analytics professional in local and global business.

The PGCertBusAn is an alternative pathway for graduates who are initially uncertain about committing to a masters programme, and for those who do not achieve the required GPA for direct entry to the Business Analytics (MBusAn).

Courses passed for the postgraduate certificate can be reassigned to the 180-point MBusAn provided you meet the minimum GPA entry requirement and the postgraduate certificate has not been awarded.

The PGCertBusAn will also serve as an additional exit qualification from the MBusAn for students who are unable to complete the requirements for progression to the advanced courses.
