Business analytics and the ability to interpret and respond to related outputs, is a major source of competitive advantage in the information age and is therefore a leading business priority globally. In recent times, this field has evolved from a technology topic to a management priority, creating an unprecedented demand for new competencies in managing with data. Taking a business rather than technology perspective, this unit covers the enterprise ecosystem in the context of strategic and operational analytics and decision making. Topics include innovation through advanced analytics, data driven performance management, strategic business improvement and management of complex BI projects. The unit offers hands-on experience in using a commercial platform, combined with in-depth analytical skills, and enables students completing the unit to help any organization to derive more value from data and information and compete on analytics.
