Event Description

Join us for a virtual class session and determine firsthand if Suffolk's MS in Business Analytics is right for you! This is an excellent opportunity to connect with faculty and current students and to explore the academic experience at Suffolk.

This course provides an introduction to business intelligence and data analytics (BI&DA). BI&DA help organizations in strategic and operational decision making by improving performance management, optimizing customer relations, monitoring business activity, and improving decision support. On a macro-level, the class will discuss business cases for the adoption of BI&DA. We will discuss technologies and processes for gathering, storing, accessing, and analyzing data to provide users with better insights and business decisions. On a micro-level, students will use a variety of tools to build their skills in analyzing data to solve business problems. In summary, this course provides a conceptual understanding of business data resources and the development of capabilities for data preparation, warehousing, selection, description, mining, interpretation, visualization, communication, and innovation.
