Overview

The Bachelor of Science (Business Analytics) degree programme is an inter-disciplinary undergraduate degree programme offered by the School of Computing with participation from the Business School, Faculty of Engineering, Faculty of Science, and Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. This is a four-year direct honours programme which offers a common two-year broad-based inter-disciplinary curriculum where all students will read modules in Mathematics, Statistics, Economics, Accounting, Marketing, Decision Science, Industrial and Systems Engineering, Computer Science and Information Systems. Students in their third and fourth years of study may choose elective modules from three lists of either functional or methodological or technological elective modules. Functional elective modules span business functions or sectors of marketing, retailing, logistics, healthcare, etc. Methodological elective modules include those related to big data techniques, statistics, text mining, data mining, social network analysis, econometrics, forecasting, operations research, etc. In sum, these elective modules span the most exciting and challenging areas of business analytics practice in the industry today.


University Scholars Programme (Business Analytics)

Students in the University Scholars Programme (USP) who choose the Bachelor of Science (Business Analytics) Co-operative Education programme will do so with the following variations:

  • They will not be required to read IS2101 Business and Technical Communication in the Core modules requirement. It is replaced by USP Foundation module of Writing and Critical Thinking.
  • They will read GER1000 Quantitative Reasoning (4 MCs) as compulsory module for the University Level Requirements (ULR). The remaining 16 MCs in ULR are replaced by the 3 USP Inquiry Modules and 1 USP Foundation module ( i.e. University Scholars Seminar).
