Programme outcomes

The goal of the Master's degree program in Business Analytics is to familiarize students with the methods and instruments required for business analyses and decision support. Students choose an in-depth area of business administration, for which they then carry out data analyses and design, implement and prototype decision support systems. 

Students are able to independently solve and interpret business decision problems, using large data sets and to derive recommendations for action.

The field of Business Analytics requires a high degree of analytical thinking from students. In the master's programme Business Analytics, students deepen both the theoretical and practical concepts of statistics, operations research, data science, and the design of information systems, taking into account business, ethical and legal aspects in dealing with large amounts of data.
