Course content

Business intelligence is an umbrella term that includes the applications, people, infrastructure, tools and best practices that allow you to access and analyse information in order to improve and optimise decisions and performance. Business intelligence has become an imperative for both private and public companies and organisations and may lead to cost reductions, better and faster decision-making processes and an easier identification of new business opportunities.

The MSc in Economics and Business Administration – Business Intelligence includes a discussion of the procedural and technical infrastructure that collects and stores the data produced by company’s activities. The programme focuses on how to analyse data in order to predict and recognise patterns and on how to visualise and present results in order to support managerial decision-making.

Acquired skills and competences

The programme will give you the competences and skills you need to take up managerial positions in private and public companies as well as in consulting firms. You will be able to work with the planning and implementation of business intelligence solutions. You will be familiar with various analytical tools and know how to apply these to new cases.


Graduates who complete the Business Intelligence programme acquire analytical skills that are highly demanded by both the public and private sector. Graduates may take up positions in international or Danish companies, public institutions and consulting firms.
