BUSADM 785 - Big Data: Management, Analytics, and Applications

3 Credit(s)

This course covers a new and increasingly popular method of conduction research using large scale data analysis. The advent of the Internet, Social Media and subsequently machine generated data has enabled social scientists to have access to extremely large datasets about the behavior of millions (or billions) of people or objects. However, collecting, storing, and analyzing this data isn’t straightforward and requires specific skills. The goal of this course is to help students gain the skills required for this type of research while exposing them to tools and big data research streams. The course will help students understand both both the challenges and the opportunities and assist them to appreciate research related to the Big Data.
