Why this programme?

The big data revolution is having an enormous impact on society, organisations and daily life. The data explosion is a tremendous source of new opportunities for companies and individuals. It enables them to make better, more customer-oriented, more targeted, more cost-efficient decisions. Business intelligence specialists have therefore become an essential asset to any company and any public institution.

On the other hand, companies have started to develop so-called smart services: product and service innovations that directly capitalise on data and technology, offering added value to customers. New business models centred on the development of smart services are being introduced to meet this demand. As a master’s student in Business Intelligence and Smart Services, you’ll learn how to analyse big data, make business decisions in data-rich environments and design data-driven smart services.
