Enterprises collect large amounts of data about their clients: historical purchases, responses to marketing events, web search logs, etc. In today’s data-driven economy, data can assist enterprises to better understand their customers, and to take more informed decisions about the business.

The objective of the course is to introduce concepts in Business Intelligence and Data Analytics. During the course we will review several methods to extract and manipulate data (SQL), visualize data and make predictive decisions from data. We will also highlight potential pitfalls. Students will get hands-on experience using Python code.

  • Group A: English
  • Group B: French


Students completing the course will understand concepts in:

  • Querying data using SQL
  • Data visualization
  • Concepts from data mining and machine learning (e.g. regression, clustering, classification, text analysis, association rules)


The lecture material will consist of slides given by the instructor.
