In the world of ‘Big Data’, companies are inundated with information, with very little clue on how to begin sorting through this information to make it meaningful to their operations. Data is now the most valuable business asset, and data analysts seek to understand the narrative behind the numbers, creating actionable insight for organisations across the industries.
There's not a single business that won't benefit from having a data expert on board, making data analysts one of the most in-demand jobs of the future. If you're looking to reskill, enrol on our master’s in Data Analytics and Technologies, designed for anyone with an Undergraduate degree or five years' relevant work experience.
Here's why reskilling at the University of Bolton is a great way to boost your employability.
From predictive data and behaviour mapping to customer intent data, trends and real-time monitoring, there are so many ways that data can benefit a business. It improves decision-making and helps organisations gain access to untapped knowledge about their market, audience and internal operations.
A recent survey of 9.2 million job adverts found that just over one in ten roles required data expertise, making data analytics an important skill to have if you want to future-proof your career.
At the University of Bolton, it’s our goal to help you become the full package. Because data skills are easily transferrable, you can increase your employability across the sectors, from healthcare, government and public services to marketing, telecommunications, and more. Whether you dream of working in an upcoming sector such as green energy, in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and automation, or in the exciting world of fashion retail, knowledge about data is essential.
