Degree programme objectives

The proposed three-year study programme, Business Analytics, aims to prepare experts in business data analytics and data-driven approaches to the decision-making processes.

The study of the programme is focused on solving challenges that companies and organisations face in the time of big data, and that cannot be solved without the help of professionals who are focused both on business and management and in statistical modelling and information technology. Therefore, this study programme differs in terms of its focus on business and management from other study programmes in the area of data science offered by other IT faculties.

The educational objectives place emphasis on understanding the issue’s context from the perspective of companies and organisations, as well as the adoption of the concepts of data analysts. The study is practically oriented and is suitable for applicants who are interested in the connection between business management and data sciences.
