Working with an ever growing amount of data is a challenge for data scientists as well as any other line of business manager and professional. Dealing with big amounts of data and to make meaningful and more importantly correct decisions has become paramount in todays economic landscape. The class prepares business students for the work as employee in basically any function, in which decision making is part of the job description. The learning objective is to be able to handle, visualize and understand data for process enablement and decision making. Together with TELANTO the course was "injected" with challenges from industry with real problems including business data management and related decision making and/or strategic planning, for instance understanding consumer behaviour based on data and make projections on future purchasing decisions.
The role of human resources has become more important over the last decade(s), driven by demographic shifts as well as more focus on the human capital, that drives innovation and growth within the organization. With new technology achievements and the increasing usage of Artificial Intelligence, the challenges for Human Resources don't stop at re-designing work places, flexible work arrangements and full package compensation plans for employees, but a complete redefinition of workforce (employees, contractors, partners, providers, customers, robots) as well as interaction between internal, external and human-machine. Particularly the international and large enterprise partnership base of TELANTO has detected a plethora of challenges within this space, which needs addressing by young, eager students, motivated to learn new concepts and propose solutions in a creative and innovative manner.
