The MIS subject area has devised a number of focused research groupings which interlink the interests of our subject areas and which are underpinned by high-quality, impactful research and scholarship.

UCD Centre for Business Analytics (CBA)

Business Analytics is about using the ever-increasing amount of data we have available internally and externally to improve insight into our business and to drive better, more focused decisions. It is an exciting new course built in response to a recognised skills shortage in Ireland. It is a growing and important part of the modern business world where data is a key source of information on how to move companies forward.
