Business Intelligence is concerned with the concepts and methods that can improve business decision-making by providing fact-based support systems. Organisations today increasingly use a set of techniques and tools to transform raw data into meaningful and useful information, to improve decision-making, to cut costs, to identify new business opportunities, and to pinpoint inefficient business processes that are ripe for re-engineering.

Career Opportunities  

    As a Business Intelligence graduate you will have the ability to create data-driven solutions to the questions that not just businesses, but society and all kinds of organisations face. You will be well equipped to work as consultant and to serve as a linchpin between management and technical staff. You will be able to identify the opportunities that big data and related emerging technologies represent. With the programming, data processing, data-analytics, and data visualisation skills you have developed, together with your hands-on experience working with data sets, you will also qualify for data-analytics jobs.

    About the Degree

    To make the best decisions, businesses need to master both business and analytics. Through the MSc in Business Intelligence, you will develop knowledge and skills related to all the steps from identifying a business problem to implementing a final business intelligence solution. The programme covers aspects related to the streamlining and understanding of data and has a strong focus on analytics with the purpose of creating business value. Consequently, you will learn how to apply a broad range of modern data-mining tools, as well as to visualise results in such a way that the managerial implications are easier to communicate.

    The MSc in Business Intelligence is dedicated to the highest-quality teaching in an informal, egalitarian learning environment. Students are always welcome to approach the teaching staff, and they are expected to participate actively in the classroom. Collaborating in small groups for project work gives students the chance to make the most of the international student environment.
