About

This course programme is established in hopes that students will be equipped with the knowledge and applied skills in data science, data analytics and business intelligence. From here, students can also plan on building their analytical and investigative knowledge and mould their interpretation skills to a whole new level. However, it is always hoped that students will also be able to comprehend the impact of data science through modern processes and business, and other aspects that will be exercised in this course.

Apart from earning a degree, students will have the opportunity to obtain a Joint Professional Certification from the SAS Institute, USA. Around 30% of the curriculum is dedicated to mini projects, allowing for hands-on experience and skill development in Data Analytics. The curriculum covers a wide range of topics including Analytical Technologies, tools like R & SAS Modelers, Data Visualization, Customer/User Behavioral Studies, Forecasting Methods, and Business Intelligence report presentation. External Program Annual Reviews are conducted by International University Partners. The program is supported by an Industry Advisory Panel comprising data analytical experts from various renowned organizations. Additionally, students can engage in research opportunities through APU’s Centre of Analytics - APCA.
