Across the globe, an estimated 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are generated every day by corporations and individuals alike. Managing and analysing these resources in the most optimal way has now become an absolutely critical success factor in creating competitive advantage and strategic leverage.
Business Intelligence and Data Analytics provide an essential set of tools and methods for guiding managers in the business decision-making process, by harnessing an organisation’s own data repositories as well as wealth of available external sources, from sophisticated financial streams to Twitter feeds.

Since 2011, we have developed a partnership with SAS, a world leader in analytics software. This partnership has allowed us to enrich students’ learning experience by providing a wealth of learning resources, guest lecture sessions from industry speakers, and regular trips to SAS headquarters.
