Activities of teaching and learning:
Material of the study module is gained both by activity in auditorium and individual work. Activity in auditorium includes lectures, group research and practical work. Individual work is comprised by study of theoretical material, preparation for lectures, group research and practical work, midterms and exam. It also includes preparation of homework, projects and other activities.
Study programme is accomplished by final degree project.
Methods of assessment of learning achievements:
Knowledge, abilities and skills, that the student will acquire during the course of the programme, are graded and registered to databases twice: during the evaluation of the student‘s independent work (positive or negative grade) and during the exam session (grade in ten-point scale).
The final degree project is defended in the public session of the studies’ branch qualification committee.
Study subjects (modules), practical training:
The future graduates study: Matrix analysis, Multidimensional statistical analysis models; Strategic business analysis; Big data mining methods; Optimization and business decision-making; Business risk and uncertainty analytics and other subjects. In total they study 14 subjects. The practice is not provided in the study programme.
During 1-3 semester students may have 21 credits choosing modules from the list: Financial and accounting data analytics; Marketing solutions modelling; Business logistics analysis; Business process modelling; Financial management solutions; Meta data analysis and information portals; Consumer behaviour research; Big data analytics tools; Time series analysis and forecasting; Financial mathematics models; Fractal analysis methods.
Distinctive features of a study programme:
The interdisciplinary programme designed to prepare highly qualified professionals which are able to assess and solve complex business problems.
