Learn about several approaches to data management as part of IU's online Master of Science in Business Intelligence program. Data modeling, data visualization, and key figure development for BI (Business Intelligence) reports are all examples of the curriculum's emphasis on practical job skills. The program will also examine ETL (Extract, Transform, Load) procedures and how organized and unstructured data are stored.
