Advice needed (Business Analytics) 
Modified By Chris Adams  on 8/28/2017 12:56:06 PM)
Hello,

I am currently in a dilemma whether to take up the new Business Analytics course (NUS's SoC) as I feel that it seems like a promising degree with the hype on big data and its versatility in various industries (Finance, IT, healthcare etc). However, I am afraid that the hype on big data is short term and would eventually die down. 
Or should I take the safer option and enrol in Business (NTU, NBS) and choose my specialization on Business Analytics on my 2nd year? A business degree from NBS sounds like a safer bet as compared to the relatively new Business Analytics course at NUS. However, NUS’s BA modules has more computing modules which should better prepare me for a job working with large data.  The 2 routes have their cons and pros which puts me in a dilemma on what to choose.Please help me out.

Any help will be appreciated.
Thank you.

Re: Advice needed (Business Analytics) 

Hi Joe,

Go with the degree which offers the courses and knowledge you want to acquire and are of interest to you.  Once you have your degree, the work experience will become more important than the degree.

Furthermore, general "Business" degrees are just that "general" and do you add any differentiation to your resume.  If I were to select between the two then I would select "Business Analytics".

Wishing you the best!

Adrian

Hi

I believe you should choose a course that is much of your ineterst. You should choose a Business Analytics in which you can use your knowledge and skills to become more successful in the field. Various Analytics Institutes provide help for beginners in choosing right course, so, you can contact them or visit their website to be more clear about all your doubts and queries regarding the course.
