Master Big Data Management

Big Data Management (M.A.) – The key to business success

Be it in a bricks and mortar retailer or an online shop, in the finance sector or aviation, the travel industry or telecommunications; data affects business success in almost every sector. The large amount of unstructured data collected needs to not only be stored, but also analysed and effectively used.

As a big data manager, it is your responsibility to generate as much strategic use out of the data as possible. You will also coordinate corresponding projects, and act as the contact person between senior management, data engineers, and data analysts. You understand the principals of information management, as well as artificial intelligence, and have a feel for new technologies and their applications in a business environment. You are also able to process data to suit the company strategy by understanding your management’s needs.  Lastly, you will use your expertise to critically analyse current advancements in the industry, differentiate between short-lived trends and realistic solutions, and present the best suggestions to senior management.

What others say about this programme

The fact that the study program is conducted in English was a major reason for choosing the IUBH because I felt more comfortable with English than with German at the time of admission. I find, however, that I automatically acquire a second foreign language for free while living in Germany.
