Digital Business Analytics

Learn how to use data as a resource and competitive advantage

The digital transformation of products and services is dramatically changing the existing economic system. As the change approaches ever more rapidly, data becomes more and more important in the development of new products and services and in the optimization of the preceding ones.

Data is not only generated by the companies themselves. Especially the analysis of web-related information, such as social media data, e-commerce data, app data, and sensor data – that is big data – provides companies with new and valuable sources of information. Digital business analytics should therefore be fully integrated into the company’s operations and made accessible to relevant decision makers.

This course teaches the basics of digital business analytics and big data management, including the topics of web analytics, social media analytics, and app analytics. It approaches the issues presented from both the management perspective and a technological view. A particular focus is placed on the use of digital customer information to enable informed marketing decisions. Participants receive comprehensive information on the most essential aspects of how to process and use large bulks of digital data for entrepreneurial decision-making and actions.

In the Certificate in Digital Business Analytics program you will learn how to

  • conduct high-quality analysis on the basis of different internal and external sources of data,
  • use generated data as an important corporate resource,
  • understand the value of data in the entrepreneurial decision-making process and respective action as well as develop digital strategies,
