The ability for organizations to transfer data (‘big data’) into knowledge and insights — also known as business intelligence, business analytics or data science- is increasingly important. Organizations anticipate an increasing need for analytic skills to transfer data into actionable insights.
To meet this need the Amsterdam Center for Business Analytics (ACBA) of the VU University Amsterdam developed the Postgraduate program (PGO) ‘Business Analytics/ Data Science’. This PGO is based on courses in existing VU-programs in Economics and Business Analytics and it offers a broad, general basis for anyone who wants to further develop themselves in business analytics and data science.
This 1-year postgraduate program is suitable for people who concern themselves with transferring data into actionable insights, as well as for people who define the need for such insights and assess corresponding results (tactical and strategic management).
