ITM402 Business Intelligence

[3–0, 3 cr.]

Business Intelligence (BI) is essentially the timely, accurate, high value and actionable business insights and the work processes and technologies used to obtain them. This is an introductory course. It will introduce business students to the theoretical concepts and practical applications of BI as a decision support tool so that they can identify problems and opportunities in their companies and apply these techniques. Statistical expertise is neither expected nor essential. Basic statistical concepts will be integrated in the course content. Special attention would be given to existing real-world applications that make use of BI and data mining techniques.
