Business Intelligence and Data Visualizations is a part of an MBAI program.
The purpose of this course is to give students a thorough understanding of business intelligence (BI) and reporting as well as data visualization techniques used in modern business applications. The first part of the course will focus on a general overview of BI, types of visualizations and BI applications in Tableau. In the second part we will switch to Power BI from Microsoft which is a related but somewhat different BI platform. We will learn about DAX, data visualizations and storytelling with Power BI as well as its differences with Tableau. Finally, we will consider R programming capabilities for data visualization. Theoretical material will be supplemented by a large number of short empirical exercises.
