This degree combines our Master of Management with specialist electives for the area of Big Data. Take a look at the Module Handbook for more details.
As a BI (Business Intelligence) consultant, you prepare, transform and make data analysable. This enables you to identify trends, analyse customer behaviour and provide solid foundations for your company’s future decisions. You act as a link between IT and the respective departments.
Big Data Scientist
As a Data Scientist you work at the interface between computer science, mathematics, management and statistics after your studies. Your goal is to use your company’s collected data as profitably as possible. You are not only responsible for analysing the data but also placing it into a business context.
Big Data Engineer
The duties of a Data Engineer are very diverse. In general terms, they take care of all processes related to the generation, storage, maintenance, processing, enrichment and transfer of data. An important aspect here is the setup and monitoring of the hardware and software infrastructure - starting with the conception, purchase and installation of all necessary components up to decisions about what software and services are used.
