Are you triggered by what data can do for the world we live in, or willing to learn? Unlock doors and peek into the complex and exiting world of companies riding the perfect wave!
In the minor “Data Driven Business Lab” we have laid out a landscape in which you can define individual goals, competencies and personal skills, working in a team of international diversity. Focus on your own qualities and strive for excellence and adventure!
Join this Minor if you want to see, in real life what the impact of data can be for a company or government. Learn how it can support, change or even disrupt business models.
Imagine any company, not so many years ago. This company generated its own data and reports, based on its trusted single source and examining the past. Yet the world this company lived in geared up, moved on, moved up. Now everything is generating data, from phone calls to smart devices, from blogs to video feeds. The world now is a complex challenge, where data is available, abundant and everywhere, and internal company data is but part of the new truth.
Can these datasets be unlocked, combined and used for potential business benefit? Can they trigger many small decisions fast instead of large decisions at snail pace…
A change of mindset and context: that is what we are going to discover together.
Experience how data helps organisations perfom better and find out your role in this field of work by getting in the groove with your talents!

What we offer
What we Expect
The learning goals:
The student is able to take ownership, be coachable and show resilience.
Organisations come in all shapes, sizes and maturity levels, though they all know that using data (smarter, better and faster) to drive their processes is future. The field of work for a data practitioner is really divers. Getting used to the tooling, languages and speed of change is possible in the projects we offer in this Lab.
Before you can start this minor you must have passed your foundation degrees (propaedeutic) and you must have finished an internship. This is needed for the practical knowledge of how businesses are run, which is an insight in business processes.
To successfully take part in this minor it is necessary to have at least a basic knowledge of applied IT, and the most common tools (Word, Excel, PowerPoint). Knowledge about databases, tables and questioning those databases with SQL is a plus. If you do not have this knowledge you can apply for an educational activity created for this. This will bring you to the minimal required level of knowledge.
This study is using “Bring Your Own Device” as standard, a laptop is a minimal requirement.
