The aim of the Big Data and Business Analytics course is to learn to formulate the right questions that arise from a specific company context, to identify and analyse the required data, and finally to relay the analysis results back to the company in a target-oriented fashion. Modules taking place at regular intervals are combined with online e-learning based on live chats and self-paced e-learning.

Practical Focus

The theoretical knowledge gained is applied and enhanced in a case study which becomes increasingly complex with each semester. To accommodate the flexibility requirements of working professionals, classroom teaching modules taking place at regular intervals over a weekend are combined with online e-learning based on live chats and self-paced e-learning.
