New MBA course maximises data to drive post-COVID strategy
In a post-COVID business environment, the use of data to drive decisions will be key to making a greater impact. A new core course, Data informed Strategy, which is part of the University of Canterbury (UC) Connected MBA programme has been officially opened by New South Wales Minister for Customer Service Victor Dominello, via video link from Australia.
“Data and precision modelling helped the NSW Government limit the spread of COVID-19 and now kickstart our economy. Real-time information that can be measured, monitored and acted upon, will be invaluable for businesses operating in the post-COVID economy.”
UC MBA Director Dr Chris Vas is pleased to welcome the Australian politician to open the programme. “It is thrilling to have the Minister for Customer Service, Victor Dominello, speak to the first ever cohort and hear how New South Wales is charting the digital-data path through its service delivery to the State,” Dr Vas says.
Now more than ever, organisations need to maximise the value of their data, unearth insights, plan and respond to market changes with a strong data-informed strategy, says Dr Vas.
“Business executives rely on data as a high-value asset to go beyond the what, to understand the why, and to plan for the future.”
