About

If you are excited about subjects like artificial intelligence (AI) and computer science, our the Business Analytics programme of the University of Amsterdam could be for you. Nowadays, organisations deal with huge amounts of freely accessible and interconnected data. In this newly developed Bachelor’s you learn how to help organisations use this ‘big data’ to improve their performance.

Overview

Help organisations improve

In the last decade, the amount of data has exploded due to internet/e-commerce services and social media. As a future business analyst, you look at how organisations and businesses operate. You investigate and analyse (big) data, interpret it, make recommendations and help develop and implement improvements.

You could help organisations and businesses tackle questions like:

  • Can you predict a supermarket’s sales volume on 2 major holidays – Christmas and Easter?
  • Can you identify the common skills and qualifications of the top-performing employees in our company?
  • How can we use our credit card data to detect future fraud transactions?
  • Is it possible to build a model that can discern whether a news piece is fake or not?
