Not just breath but depth
The La Trobe Master of Business Analytics gives you a strong grounding in analytics and also a chance to apply your skills in a specialisation of your choice. For example, data science, sports analytics, or health analytics.
The analytics profession requires multidisciplinary skills and applied practice–that's why our course combines theory and practice. You'll get a grounding in commonly used industry tools including SAS, IBM Cognos, SAP, HANA, Tableau, Microsoft and R.

The curriculum is designed by academic staff and practitioners with significant experience and industry engagement, as well as expertise in online interactive teaching. The course has a strong industry presence, so you'll get a deep understanding of how the theory applies in the real-world.
The course includes a mix of teaching methods, from traditional classroom lectures and assignments to industry projects, client role-play, and expert assessments. You'll work on problems using industry standard tools and create solutions using industry processes.
Flexible delivery model
Using interactive tools like Skype for Business, you can engage with the class, ask questions, receive feedback, or get workshop assistance from the lecturer in real-time. These interactive sessions will be recorded and made available online if you are unable to attend a class, helping you learn and collaborate anywhere, anytime.
