The Engagement of the Business Management Students with the World of Big Data in Business Analytics: A Preparation


Nelia Ereno (Philippines)


In this era of Big Data, the use of programming languages/softwares such as R and Python is a necessity. Hence, a university is facing more challenges as it offers courses such as Machine Learning and Business Analytics. One of these challenges is to make the students more statistics savvy. Thus, this study will assess the level of aptitudes of the Business Management students in their basic Statistics. It will be done though survey and Focus Group Discussions. Solutions to gaps based on the assessment done will be brainstormed by the concerned faculty. Likewise, the curriculum and the faculty's preparations to start up with this new trend will be assessed through interviews. Suggestions and recommendations will be based on the results of the interviews.
