Drive better business insights with big data and analytics

Big data and analytics have pervaded nearly every aspect of our professional and personal lives. More importantly, the influx of these platforms has been very rapid, often blindsiding even the best managers and companies.

Until now, time and resources have been mostly dedicated to training data scientists and implementing analytics. Yet the strategic aspects of data analytics have been largely overlooked.

Digital Analytics (DA) is your chance to take a strategic, rather than a tactical perspective on big data and analytics.

You will leave the program with a new understanding of what big data and analytics can do for your business and how you can best utilize and allocate resources in these areas.

Explore your data analytics maturity

Digital Analytics introduces you to new techniques for data analysis, exploring the topics of big data and digital analytics.

You will learn the very latest techniques to analyse data and how to manage analytics and big data in your business to support your very own digital strategy.

Through a selection of hands-on exercises, you will have the opportunity to discuss the challenges that you face and exchange ideas with your peers and IMD faculty.

You will also take part in simulations, surveys and group work built on real life examples – exploring how businesses use data analysis techniques to plan and execute their strategies.

Who should attend

This program is designed for managers and business leaders who make complex decisions in areas related to digital transformation and digital strategy and need to gain a stronger understanding of the underlying concepts behind big data and analytical techniques. You will explore the very latest developments in the world of Big Data and what these mean for you and your business, and crucially you will evaluate your capabilities to deploy analytics strategies into your business.

This program is not a statistical analysis course. This program is not recommended for executives with extensive data analytics experience.
