Online Global MBA (Data-Driven Decision-Making)

This specialisation focuses on how data can be managed within an organisation and how it can be used to improve decision making. The rise of machine learning and big data now gives businesses greater access to relevant organisational data, and this pathway will help you understand how organisations gather, organise, and analyse this data.

You will also explore the ways in which data can be used for strategic decision-making, with particular consideration given to systems such as dashboards, visualisations, and analytics.

As part of your studies you’ll be given access to Salesforce Trailhead, an online learning platform that we’ve customised to provide training content focused on giving you the tools you’ll need to operate in the most up-to-date sales and e-commerce environments. You’ll also be introduced to Tableau tools and software—a leading platform in the field of data analytics and visualization training, helping you gain further cutting-edge skills and competencies.
