Business Intelligence and Analytics

Students on this course address the need to propel information gathering and data organisation, and exploit potential information and knowledge hidden in routinely collected data to improve decision making. Study focuses on developing solutions to real-world problems associated with the changing nature of IT infrastructure and increasing volumes of data, through the use of applications and case studies, while gaining a deep appreciation of the underlying models and techniques.
