  • The MSc is designed to combine theory and practice. It teaches the advanced techniques and ideas that are being developed in application domains (such as machine learning, verification and computer security) and the rich and diverse theories that underpin them.These include models of computation and data, and mathematical analysis of programs and algorithms
  • Students will develop knowledge and understanding of a formal disciplined approach to computer science, a range of relevant concepts, tools and techniques, the principles underpinning these techniques and the ability to apply them in novel situations
  • This course can be studied as a part of the Oxford 1+1 MBA programme. The Oxford 1+1 MBA is a unique, two-year graduate experience that combines the depth of a specialised, one-year master's degree with the breadth of a top-ranking, one-year MBA
