Course Description

In this course, students will learn to create useful analysis for the business within a functional reporting framework. Also, students will learn to gather the right requirements and ask the right business questions to create dashboards and reports for presenting the results of business analysis using the MAD framework.


Course Details

Business Intelligence is often misunderstood because it resides in-between the business and the technology departments of an organization. Both its challenges and its potential are borne from the dependence on collaboration to achieve the desired outcome. However, this collaboration requires that both groups understand the needs and capabilities that Business Intelligence solutions can provide.

The concepts in this course will be taught through a class-long mini-project where you will engage in the hands-on development of dashboards, scorecards and reports primarily using tools from the Microsoft suite.
