7th LIECHTENSTEIN WINTERSCHOOL 2018.
Business Process Management & Data Science
University of Liechtenstein, 18th February (Sunday) ~ 23th February (Friday), 2018
Business processes are everywhere. Tasks such as booking an airline ticket online, developing a new product, or treating a patient can be viewed as processes crossing organizational and technological boundaries. According to the analysts of the Gartner Group, the improvement of end-to-end business processes is the number one business priority of today’s CIOs. Consequently, Business Process Management (BPM) has become a widely appreciated approach for the analysis and design of organizations and information systems. In 2018, for the second time the winter school will also focus on Data Science and therefore on getting to know methodological competences for turning information into competitive advantage and innovation.
The course is organized by the Hilti Chair of Business Process Management at the Institute of Information Systems of the University of Liechtenstein, one of the most active BPM and Data Science research groups in Europe. You will gain a comprehensive understanding of the contemporary state-of-the-art in BPM and Data Science. Classes are taught by BPM and Data Science thought leaders from both academia and practice. You will apply the learned concepts and methods in case studies and exercises. You are expected to read papers and book chapters that will be assigned prior to attending the course.
Topics covered in the course include:
– Introduction to BPM & Data Science
– Methods for BPM & Data Science
– Best Practice Examples for BPM & Data Science
– BPM: Alignment, Governance and Human Factors
– Data Science: Decision Theory, Technologies and Algorithms
– Early bird registration: 8th December, 2017
– Registration deadline: 19th January, 2018
– Winter School: 18th ? 23th February, 2018
The Winter School is especially targeted at Bachelor students. You should have attended introductory courses in information systems, management studies, or computer science. Your English skills should be good enough to actively take part in class discussions.
The costs for tuition, accommodation (Arrival: Sunday, 18th February; Departure: Friday, 23th February), meals, and social events are as follows:
Early bird registration: EUR 325

Given that your home institution agrees, the course can provide 5 ECTS (you have to pass a written exam at the end of the week). You may also choose to participate as a noncredit student.
The Principality of Liechtenstein is located in the Alpine Rhine Valley in the heart of Europe, surrounded by its neighbors Switzerland and Austria. Liechtenstein is a wonderful place for a wide range of winter sports, such as snowshoe hiking, sledding, ice skating, skiing, and snowboarding. The Liechtenstein Winter School will take place at the University of Liechtenstein in Vaduz.
