Exchange Initiative Business Analytics and Big Data

This portal is part of an exchange initiative organized by Hochschule der Medien Stuttgart. Together with the partner universities Avans, Almeria, Metropolia and Pace we try to improve the international cooperation concerning teaching Business Intelligence and Business Analytics as well as the exchange of students and lecturers. This cooperation project has been enabled by the funding of Baden-Württemberg-STIPENDIUM.

“Exchange Initiative Business Analytics and Big Data” is part of the Baden-Württemberg-STIPENDIUM for university students – BWS plus, a programme of the Baden-Württemberg Stiftung. The project runs from 01. September 2016 until 31. August 2018.


The Baden-Württemberg-STIPENDIUM supports the international exchange of students and vocationally qualified people/young professionals. Since 2001, it has enabled more than 20,000 young people from Baden-Württemberg to spend some time abroad and allowed scholarship holders from other countries to get to know Baden-Württemberg. Each year more than 1,000 young people receive a Baden-Württemberg-STIPENDIUM.
