Big Data Management and Analytics
Start date: Sep 1, 2016,
End date: Oct 31, 2021
Business Intelligence (BI) enables an organisation to collect and analyse internal and external data to generate knowledge that support the decision-making processes. Big Data (BD) expands the analytical capabilities of organisations to the extent that any piece of relevant data must be gathered, processed, and analysed. BD implies the complete digitalisation of the organisations' internal processes and the incorporation of external data from any available relevant source. The EMJMD in "Big Data Management and Analytics" (BDMA) is designed to provide understanding, knowledge, and skills in the broad scope of fields underlying BI and BD. Its main objective is to train computer scientists who have an in-depth understanding of the stakes, challenges, and open issues of gathering and analysing large amounts of heterogeneous data for decision-making purposes. The curriculum is jointly delivered by Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB), Belgium, Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), Spain, Technische Universität Berlin (TUB), Germany, Technische Universiteit Eindhoven (TU/e), the Netherlands, and Université François Rabelais Tours (UFRT), France. Academic partners around the world and partners from leading industries in BI and BD, private companies, excellence centres, service companies, start-up incubators, public research institutes, and public authorities will contribute to the programme. BDMA is a 2-year (120 ECTS) programme. Semesters 1 and 2 are devoted to fundamentals on BI and BD delivered by ULB and UPC. Then, all students participate to the European Business Intelligence and Big Data Summer School (eBISS). In semester 3 students chose one of the three specialisations delivered by TUB, TU/e, and UFRT. Semester 4 is dedicated to the master's thesis. All students attend the Final Event devoted to master's theses defences and the graduation ceremony.
