New opportunities for graduates with business analytics skills
Analytics degrees can open doors for new graduates, particularly in light of the widening talent gap created by the new challenges presented by big data. According to a report by Marketing Week entitled ‘The Future Marketing Organisation’, 24 percent of marketers rank data skills as their biggest perceived skills gap.
Indeed, by 2020, 35 percent of the skills that are important in today's economy will have changed. Some jobs will have completely disappeared, while new ones will be created, and the way we work will not be the same. In fact, according to a report by the World Economic Forum, complex problem-solving, critical thinking, judgment and decision making will become three of the top skills we need.
High-paying jobs with a business analytics degree
The obvious jobs within analytics are data scientists and management analysts but many jobs today require analytics experience in order to help predict future outcomes and make informed decisions about the business. Jobs like human resources, customer service, marketing, operations and finance. Companies are always scrambling to hire new recruits with data literacy skills, and rewarding career opportunities can be found in areas such as market research, supply chain management, project management or consultancy.
According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, 115,200 new management analyst jobs will be created between 2016 and 2026.
