Big Data - of ever greater significance in the corporate environment
The volume of structured and unstructured data available to companies today both from internal and external data sources is growing rapidly. The objective is to utilize this data for targeted sales pitches, in establishing new business fields and in optimizing corporate processes.
Generating knowledge from data
The aim of the Big Data and Business Analytics program at SRH Hochschule Heidelberg is to ask the right big data questions arising from the specific company context, to identify and analyze the relevant data, and finally to relay the analysis results back to the company in a target-oriented fashion.
What we offer
As a result, apart from technical and statistical tools such as big data architectures, data mining and predictive analytics, the curriculum is also focused largely on creative questioning techniques, visualization, storytelling, ethics and international law. The theoretical knowledge gained is applied and enhanced in a case study which increases in complexity with each semester.
The study course is oriented towards all company specialists and executives with responsibility for establishing new spheres of application and for project planning and implementation in the field of big data und business analytics, such as:
- Specialists with a (business) informatics, mathematics or engineering degree who wish to extend their knowledge in the field of business analytics and/or big data analytics and to take on personal responsibility for the planning and coordination of big data projects.
- Business analysts or specialists who work in the wider sphere of "business intelligence" and wish to extend their knowledge in the field of big data engineering, big data management and/or big data analytics and to take on responsibility for the planning and coordination of big data projects.
