About the Course
Business analytics is the use of statistical and quantitative methods, along with technology, to gain insights and make informed business decisions. It involves collecting, organising, and analysing data to understand patterns, trends, and relationships that can inform decision-making. Business analytics can be used in a wide range of areas, such as finance, marketing, operations, and human resources. It has always been a critical strategic advantage for organisations such as HP, IKEA, Google, Adidas, JP Morgan, and Disney to use data effectively to drive rapid, precise, and profitable decisions throughout the organisation. For example, IKEA uses analytics to monitor and update its inventory in a way that allows it to serve its customers at an exceptionally low cost; HP applied analytics to segment and better manage its supply chain; and Ford and Schneider Electric use data and analytics to significantly improve the resiliency of their supply chain and better respond to a disruption anywhere in their network.
NITIE, Mumbai is proud to present the Global Online Certification Course on 'Business Analytics: From Data to Insights and Decision Making-2023 ' in association with Prof. David Simchi-Levi (MIT, USA) under the leadership of Prof. Manoj K.
