Business analytics is concerned with the use of data, quantitative analysis, predictive models and fact-based management to create value for organisations. With the tremendous growth in the amount of data being generated by organisations, government and society, it is crucial that the leaders of tomorrow understand the proper tools to be able to make evidence-based decisions.
