MSc Computer Science vs Data Science vs Business Analytics watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi everyone,

    I have been looking at MSc courses related to computer science and data recently.
    I'm doing a BA (Hons) in Economics and Mathematics at the moment, so I'm looking for something which does not require a Bachelor in Computer Science, but it might have some other quantitative entry requirements.

    Which of the below do you think would be best for a future career options?

    I don't know if I want to work with programming or simply with analytics, but figured that programming skills are always useful and I find programming very fun with the basic stuff I've done so far (Python and Stata in class as well as some beginner Java on the side).

    KCL - MSc Data Science (Does anyone know where to find information on specific modules taught on the course?)
    Imperial - MSc Business Analytics
    UCL/Bristol - MSc Computer Science (conversion)

    Thank you!

    Hey bud, I've been looking into similar courses to convert into the programming field. I did like the look of the Bristol course, plus Bristol is a great place.

    I'm applying for the Msc Computer Science at Kent University at the moment. It's also a conversion course and they have their module details online if you want to have a gander.

    Also University of Hertfordshire also does a conversion course (for technical/numeric backgrounds).
