New NUS undergraduate course in business analytics

To boost the pool of business analysts in Singapore, the National University of Singapore (NUS) , will be offering a new undergraduate degree programme in August.

The multi-disciplinary Business Analytics degree programme will be based in the School of Computing, but students will also have the opportunity to take modules in mathematics, statistics, economics, marketing, computer science and information systems as well.

NUS said that students will learn how "to organise, make sense of, and derive critical insights from large amounts of business data" during the duration of their four-year direct Honours programme.

The NUS spokesman said that 40 students will be admitted this year, followed by 80 undergraduates a year by 2016. Applications are currently open and more information can be found at
