About de course

Business IT and Management focuses on aligning Business and IT. In a Business Intelligence context this implies focusing on collecting and analyzing data about for example customers, suppliers, competitors, trends and processes in a business, in order to get information that will support decisions in a business. 

What to do with data

[The amount of internal data about a company is increasing progressively and so does the need for those data to be converted into information.]

Credits back home

As an international exchange student at Windesheim, you will get study credits that may count towards the qualification you are studying for back home. So studying at Windesheim doesn’t have to mean extending your overall study time. You will make a ‘learning agreement’ covering your stay.

Career-focused learning

More and more parties involved, such as customers, shareholders and government organizations, demand relevant, up-to-date and trustworthy information about businesses. Moreover, good management decisions require a proper understanding of the internal factors that influence business accomplishments. Business Intelligence optimizes the use made of the information available. We deal with issues such as: Data Warehousing, Management information systems Statistics and Data mining.
