What is the difference between the Master of Analytics and Master of Applied Data Science?
The Master of Analytics focuses on understanding problems that businesses face and how to develop data analytics to address these problems. This course builds on core data mining skills and how to analyse, solve and present data and solutions for complex decision-making.
This course is for students who may not have had any formal IT experience as it provides foundational knowledge that you’d require to progress into a role within this field.
Alternatively, the Master of Applied Data Science will help you develop the technical skills required for wrangling data and analysing it. The Master of Data Science also focuses on programming and advanced mathematical modelling to achieve these outcomes.
Students looking to complete this course require previous knowledge – academic or work experience – within the IT and/or science or maths field already.
