Interesting video on eWeek.com called Business Intelligence Takes Higher Education Students to the Head of the Class that talks about how colleges are noticing that there is a high demand for employees with business intelligence and analytics expertise, and are now offering these courses and degrees. The colleges are also using these solutions to cut their own costs, improve patient care, and benefit the environment.
The video mentions the need for employees with BI and analytics skills is expected to grow 20 percent through 2018.
My research showed very few schools offering undergraduate degrees in BI, and a handful more offering graduate-level BI majors.
Undergraduate degrees in business intelligence:
- Creighton Business Intelligence and Analytics
- St. Joseph’s University Business Intelligence Major
- University of Massachusetts – Boston: Information Technology Major BI Tract
- Grand Canyon University’s Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with an emphasis in Business Intelligence
