Students preparing for careers in today's challenging global economic

critical thinking skills that make the learning experience richer and

visually analyze data, enabling them to make new connections within
their studies and research and discover new insights that drive
innovative ideas and better decisions.
Organizations of all types and sizes leverage QlikView's powerful
Business Discovery platform, which enables intuitive user-driven
analysis in a Google-like experience, rather than confining it to a
predefined path of questions. When academic institutions leverage
QlikView, they give students in every discipline the opportunity to
learn critical skills that will prepare them for leadership in their
chosen fields. Students with QlikView experience will look at
information differently. They will understand how to discover patterns,
make connections across their areas of study, and use visualizations to
bring findings to life.

Academic Program. With this knowledge and hands-on experience, students

Villanova University's School of Business is addressing the need for
students to build strong analytics skills with newly designed business
intelligence courses for undergraduate MIS (Management of Information
Systems) majors and MBA students. Students benefit by learning about the
advances in analytics and the corresponding new opportunities that use
analytics to help tackle complex business and societal challenges. The
classes also give students the opportunity to apply analytics skills to
real business scenarios.
"Analytics is going mainstream, which makes it important for us to
invigorate the classroom and that calls for integrating the latest
technology into our curriculum," said Wenhong Luo, Associate Professor
of Accounting and Information Systems at Villanova School of Business.
"QlikView fits perfectly with my curriculum, and it is so easy to learn
that students are able to build BI applications after a few classes.
Working with QlikView, we are giving students the opportunity to tackle
real-world business problems, and with this type of experience, students
can be productive a lot sooner in their future endeavors."
