Retraining with a master’s in Data Analytics and Technologies at the University of Bolton is one of the best things you can do for your career. Our programme helps students develop key employability skills and advanced data expertise, giving them a competitive edge in the jobs market. The power of data in businesses is undeniable, and having the skills to make sense of data is a great way to ensure you get hired.
Here are just a few of the reasons why analytical knowledge is more powerful than ever:
The benefits of Big Data analytics are endless, but this area is so large, fast and complex that it’s impossible to process using traditional methods. In order to stay ahead of the curve, it’s important for companies to upskill their workforce. More and more businesses are now realising why Big Data matters, and the growing analytics market is set to reach over £211 billion by 2023!
Organisations that are able to tap into existing data sets and make them meaningful are able to improve decision making and find solutions to problems. That’s why data experts are in demand; they have the knowledge and expertise to turn raw data into actionable insights to improve a company’s bottom line.
Businesses interested in saving time and money are likely to invest in data analytics and processing. Therefore, a master’s in Data Analytics can open up a world of opportunities across every sector. In fact, a recent survey of 9.2 million job adverts found that just over one in ten roles required data expertise, so there’s no better time to retrain to boost your employability.
