It was wonderful to have been a student of the inaugural Business Intelligence specialisation class at ESC Clermont. The sessions provide excellent treatment of the main topics relevant to the BI world and function as a basis for bridging the gap between information technology and business practitioners. In-class exercises allowed me to connect the theory to real-life. The project assignment gave me the opportunity to build competence in using an actual BI tool. This is overall a great specialisation which will serve all participants well for the future.
Being in this programme has really exceeded my expectations. The balance struck between theory, practice (with relevant software) and conferences with professionals helps to understand the importance of Business Intelligence to any organization, and has equipped me with the right knowledge and technical skills to function in any setting I find myself. I highly recommend this programme to everyone.
The provision of workshops, conferences and lectures by inviting experts from reputable companies such as Credit Agricole, CGI, Microstrategy, Michelin and others is also one of the distinctive superiority of BIA masters program at ESC Clermont.
