It’s probably no news to you: big data is all around us! Every minute, more than 3 million pieces of content are shared on Facebook, 4 million searches are executed by Google, and Amazon makes more than hundred thousand dollars in sales. This flood of data offers tremendous opportunities, though challenges as well. Gartner estimates that only 15% of organizations are able to exploit big data for competitive advantage, a strong indication of the upcoming need for analytical skills and resources. As the data piles up, managing and analyzing this powerful resource in the best way become critical success factors in creating competitive advantage and strategic leverage.
Due to increasing demand, we are launching a new postgraduate programme: Big Data & Analytics in Business and Management.
This programme is a unique offering as its aim is to bridge the gap between technical concepts and business applications of big data and analytics techniques. The programme will discuss data analytics fundamentals and big data technologies, but also business applications and managerial aspects, such as dealing with team organization, data quality, deployment, valorization concerns and privacy aspects.
The programme is targeted at professionals with a minimum amount of work experience. It consists of 8 half-day classes, organized on Fridays from October 7 until December 2, 2016.
