Developed in collaboration with mining industry and data analytics experts as well as business academics, the program offers practical insights into the business of mining supported by current research. Participants will practise creating and supporting a business case using data analytics in order to refine the skills taught in the program and enhance their ability to make decisions upon return to the office.
