The Master in Big Data and Business Analytics , co-developed with the multinational Indra technology, provides a global vision of Big Data technologies and their use, as well as applied and practical training in business analytics techniques ( Business Analytics ), that is, in the application of Data Science techniques to business problems.

The lowering of the costs of digital information storage and the generalization of virtualization and cloud computing technologies have allowed an extraordinary development of the possibilities to extract value from data in companies and institutions.

This context has led to the emergence of new professional roles such as that of the Data Scientist and has led to a reformulation of data processing technologies , as they require an update and reorientation of ICT professionals and other business areas.

According to a Spring Professional 2018 Wanted report, the Big Data Architect profile is the most sought-after within the IT sector.

Big Data University: this program allows to obtain a double degree in bigdata from the Nebrija University (Spain).

The program responds to the need to know in a practical and applied way the use of technologies and data analysis methods.

The main objective of this master in bigdata is for students to learn from the knowledge and practical experience of professionals (authors of the IMF training program) that combine a solid technical background and the applicability of technologies, through the use of technology, using software tools that are applied in professional environments to obtain training in the area of Business Analytics and Big Data in a flexible way.
