    Business Intelligence: Master Programme ↗️

    The Business Intelligence (BI) Program gives an intensive and broad training in information analysis, information modelling, decision making – key components in the BI chain training system - which integrate the core components from BI with skills in Data Science and Statistics. This design aims for students to meet increasing global challenges in careers and provide the students with competence and capability from advanced data analysis research to enterprise management skills.During the program knowledge and skills in the area micro-data analysis and big data analysis is given. Students are trained in analysis of company data both with statistical methods and methods coming from computer science in a BI context. Furthermore, the program addresses issues relating to data visualization and decision making. At the end of the program, students have had courses associated to different types of BI technologies which can be used in organizations. The program consists of courses that train students in practical skills to collect, store, visualize and analyze data.During the second semester of the program the students write their Master thesis. In the beginning of the semester, students will formulate a basic outline of their thesis work i.e. problem definition, hypothesis and a list of references. The students also have to describe how they intend to solve the problem and explain what material that will be used in the thesis and how they plan to access it. The plan should also include what need of new learning that exist in order to fulfill the thesis work. The plan will be delivered to a supervisory group for discussion and approval. During the second semester the student will pursue the thesis work. The thesis may be methodological in nature and contribute to the development of methods and techniques in micro-data analysis; or be practical in nature aimed at strengthening a part of an organizations’ BI chain.

    The Data Science Programme provides students with an intensive and broad education in data collection, data processing, information analysis, information modelling and decision-making, which are components in the so-called Business Intelligence chain (BI). The programme integrates the most important components from Artificial Intelligence, data analysis of business data, and information systems with statistical principles. The design aims both to develop the ability of students to meet increasing global challenges in their careers and to give capacity to work within such diverse areas as data analysis research to enterprise management.In year one, students broaden their knowledge and skills in the main field of study, Microdata Analysis. A number of courses at the start of the programme lay the foundation for the rest of the programme. Courses in the first year focus on the analysis of business data using statistical and computer science methods in a BI context. Additionally, questions relating to data collection and data quality are discussed. By the end of the first year, the foundation for how to utilise various technologies will have been laid. The first year of the programme is when students gain practical skills in collecting, storing and analysing data.In year two, students are taught about and tested on issues that are relevant to data modelling and data analysis. Second-year courses aim to deepen and broaden the knowledge that students acquire in the first year. For example, students gain a deeper knowledge of data modelling and also learn how to analyse spatial data. In the second year, students formulate a basic outline for their thesis work. In the plan, a problem is identified and a research outcome is formulated. The plan must describe how the problem will be solved and what material the work will be based on, as well as how access to this can be assured. In addition, the plan outlines what the student needs to learn to be able to complete the thesis, and on the basis of these needs, appropriate elective courses are chosen. The plan is presented to a supervisory group. In the final semester, students complete their thesis work. The thesis work can be methodological in nature and contribute to the development of methods and techniques within the field of microdata analysis. It can also be practical in nature and aim to strengthen the BI chain of an organisation or improve it in some form.
