This unit is a bridge between business and information technology and will equip the students with knowledge and skills required to lead and manage big data projects. Specifically, the unit focuses on big data applications on both a strategic and operational level. More importantly, this unit focuses on how business processes and business models may be transformed through big data and analytics, the impact of big data on companies’ IT infrastructure, the use of resources, especially human resources, to conduct big data analyses, and identify the necessary technological underpinnings of big data and analytics. The unit is especially tailored for MBA students and business managers with a primary focus on managerial discussions surrounding big data deployment and decision making using big data and analytics insights within large companies. The technical aspect of the unit is on a level comprehensible and applicable by Masters level management students who do not necessarily possess technical training in big data software applications.
