Business intelligence and data reporting have a double importance for modern-day businesses: they help them to better understand and improve their daily operations, and they help them plan and assess what they need to do in the future.


With the Master’s programme in Business Intelligence, you’ll be able to develop a strong base of knowledge in the business and technical aspects of data management and business intelligence. Use that knowledge to help make businesses better, and develop an international career in a fast-growing industry sector.


Once you’ve acquainted yourself with the main practical aspects of business intelligence, you’ll spend the later part of your studies expanding and deepening your knowledge, with the option to choose elective courses that match your interests in the field.


Our 120-ECTS Master's degree programme in Business Intelligence is designed for students who have earned a Bachelor's degree with a focus on Information Sciences.


With your Master's in Business Intelligence, you can expect excellent career prospects in global companies looking to improve their business operations by analysing data. Whether it be in sports organisations, software companies or e-commerce operations, you can find one of the following roles:


Business Intelligence Analyst

Business intelligent analysts are professionals with the ability to make sense of complex data, recognise patterns in it and come up with business-relevant insights based on those patterns and findings. They’re responsible for not only generating data reports, but also for developing the concepts for which they should be created. That is why for such a role, a strong understanding of business administration objectives is required.


Business Intelligence Solution Architect

Your work as a business intelligence solution architect will revolve around analysing business processes. Create prediction models, develop databases and data warehouse architectures, generate reports and dashboards for stakeholders and be the contact person for questions regarding data and operations.



Data Consultant

As a data consultant, it will be up to you to develop data management strategies based on your expertise as a business intelligence professional. Solve concrete problems regarding data analysis and protection, but also work on implementing large-scale data collection strategies for companies.
