A Graduate Diploma is an academic and professional qualification that aims to provide students with specialized knowledge and skills for a specific industry. Unlike a degree, it is usually completed in a shorter period of time and is intended to enhance employment opportunities by offering additional expertise. It is typically pursued after a bachelor's degree and can also serve as a stepping stone towards a relevant master's degree.

Graduate Diploma Business Analytics Programm
For those undertaking market research in practice, an ability to handle data is an essential skill. This course concentrates on transforming students into competent and confident users of statistical software to enable them to conduct independent data analysis by taking a more applied approach to conventional statistics. The first half of the course focuses on aspects of market research, and in the second half the emphasis is on the practical application of a variety of multivariate statistical techniques to supplied datasets.
  • ST3188 Statistical methods for market research
Two compulsory courses
  • ST2187 Business analytics, applied modelling and prediction
People in business, economics and the social sciences are increasingly aware of the need to be able to handle a range of mathematical and statistical models. It must be admitted that many good managers are not very mathematically adept. However, they would be even more inquisitive, more precise, more accurate in their statements, more selective in their use of data, more critical of advice given to them etc. if they had a better grasp of quantitative subjects. Modelling is an important tool which all good managers should appreciate. The course extends and reinforces existing knowledge and introduces new areas of interest and applications of modelling in the ever-widening field of management

  • ST3189 Machine learning
In the last decade there has been a remarkable growth in machine learning with image and speech recognition, recommendation systems and artificial intelligence being only some the big success stories. Following recent advances in gathering, storing and managing vast amounts of observations, the ability to process high dimensional data and deal with uncertainty becomes increasingly important. This course covers a wider range of such model based and algorithmic machine learning methods, illustrated in various real-world applications and datasets. At the same time, the theoretical foundation of the methodology is presented.

Graduate Diploma Data Science Programm
In the last decade the demand for programming skills related to managing and visualizing data has grown remarkably. Python, R and SQL feature consistently in the top skills listed in data science and data analyst jobs. Knowing how to write efficient software code to handle and visualise data is an essential skill for any modern data scientist. This course will cover the main principles of computer programming with a focus on data science applications by following the entire pathway from raw data to databases, data wrangling and visualisation, machine learning frameworks up to software development.
