Leadership Challenges with Big Data

Leadership Challenges with Big Data

Organisations increasingly use big data to reinvent their business. Big data brings disruption to industries and organisations and can revolutionise the way we do business. The eight-day programme Leadership Challenges with Big Data supports organisations in their transformation towards a data-driven company. It connects professionals in technical- and methodology-oriented data science with professionals engaged in business analytics, and links them to business’ best practices with senior executive involvement.

The RSM Executive Education programme is developed and organised by the Erasmus Centre for Data Science and Business Analytics. The programme is taught at Erasmus University Rotterdam, the leading university in business and analytics in the Netherlands. Leadership Challenges with Big Data combines academic research-based insights with industry best practices.
