Big Data for Business, BF


Big Data for Business is the course driven by real cases. Several practitioners including leading analysts, consulters, and private entrepreneurs will demonstrate how big data are collected and analyzed by firms. Together with the KSE team, these invited speakers will run practical workshops teaching students a variety of techniques and applications for big data analysis. Most of the data offered to students were collected for real business tasks or analytical exercises. While most of the course will rely on R, some invited speakers will demonstrate other tools as well.


Students will learn how to create interactive dashboards for their data, how to analyze texts of media publications, user flows of gamer, and analyze public pages of brands via Facebook etc.


In addition to the main goal of the course, which is to demonstrate and teach applications of big data for business, students will have some introduction to Python in order to progress with other courses in the future.
