    Level 6ยทBusiness Analytics Undergrad at NUS

    Hi, Business analytics graduate here so I might be able to help. Please take this with a grain of salt!

    In general - business analytics gradautes will

    • quant investing (Very difficult)

    • Data driven decisions (eg. Grab: Which promo code is best for user acquisition? What about Chinese cuisine in Jurong)

    • Business Intelligence (Grab: I need the data for each new user - what was the first order value and is there a correlation between order value and probability of 2nd order?)

    For computer science undergraduates

    • Building a mobile application

    • working on data infrastructure

    • software engineering

    Obviously, I am doing alot of generalisation here, but I hope you get the picture.

      Tough to tell.

      What programming languages do you learn in com science?

      Last time during my time only Java and C/C++ was taught to us. Fast forward to nowadays, these are kind of old school and nobody wants to hire. Now alot of weird languages, python, scala, ruby and dont know what.

      Business analytics might be more useful outright I guess. Now alot of employers hiring data analysts, finance analysts, business analytics, analytics and data manipulation in general is high demand.
