Faculty and research

Department of Data Science and Analytics

The Department of Data Science and Analytics is the ninth department at BI Norwegian Business School and was established in 2020. Our faculty have a background in statistics, machine learning, statistical learning, and/or artificial intelligence.

The department works in both applied and theoretical research in data science and statistics and aims at publications in top journals in the field. We have activities in teaching, supervision of students, and research projects.  We will also be a single point of contact for other departments at BI to obtain, coordinate and collaborate on cutting-edge knowledge in advanced data science.

BI Norwegian Business school and Simula Research Laboratory have signed a memorandum of understanding to strengthen our expertise on data science through collaboration related to research and have established a new research center called Simula@bi.

The data science research centre, Simula@BI, aims at facilitating academic collaboration in data science across BI and with Simula and other external partners.
