The Master's Degree in Information Technologies for Business Intelligence (IT4BI) received its first generation of students in September 2012. One year later, the second generation of which I was part, would be welcomed to start studies in Brussels as well.
Since its beginning, IT4BI has been facilitating learning, research and international collaboration in a positive and friendly atmosphere, thus providing the means for personal and professional development of many people around the World.
By the end of September 2016, the fifth generation of IT4BI students will have started their studies in Brussels while the third generation completes their thesis defences and the fourth generation begins their specialisation semesters in Barcelona, Berlin and Paris.
In September 2017, IT4BI will become BDMA, which stands for "Big Data Management and Analytics". BDMA focuses on the new needs of research, education, and industry with respect to Big Data and will keep on receiving the support of the European Commission as part of the Erasmus+ Programme.
IT4BI has literally changed many lives and there are no doubts that BDMA will keep on doing so. You may learn more about BDMA programme on the official website.
