QlikView Academic Program Gains Global Momentum

QlikTech, (NASDAQ: QLIK) a leader in Business Discovery – user-driven Business Intelligence (BI), today announced that the QlikView Academic Program has awarded nearly 100 grants in 35 countries since launching one year ago. Part of QlikTech’s global Corporate Social Responsibility Program, the QlikView Academic Program allows any accredited, university-level institution to apply for free licenses of the QlikView Business Discovery platform to use within its educational curricula.

Universities around the globe benefiting from the QlikView Academic Program include: Universidad Nacional de La Pampa (Argentina); Macquarie University (Australia); British Columbia Institute of Technology (Canada); University of Economics, Prague (Czech Republic); Tallinn University of Technology (Estonia); Polytech Lyon (France); Dresden University of Technology (Germany); Thammasat University (Thailand); Stockholm University (Sweden); University of Derby (UK); Idaho State University (US); and Hult International Business School (US).

The National University of Singapore Business School is addressing the need for students to build strong analytics skills in its purchasing and materials management courses. Taught by former Executive Director Global Supply Chain Intelligence at Estee Lauder Companies, Keith Carter worked extensively with QlikView, and knew he could use it to demonstrate industry practices effectively. Students benefit by learning about the advances in analytics and the corresponding new opportunities that use analytics to help tackle complex business and societal challenges. The classes also give students the opportunity to apply analytics skills to real business scenarios.

"Because of the QlikView Academic Program, instead of using textbooks, our students are getting real industry experience with Big Data tools to learn about a wide variety of industries such as transportation, beverage, and retail,” said Carter, Adjunct Associate Professor, Decision Sciences National, at University of Singapore Business School. “As a result, students preparing for careers are gaining strong analytical skills, and learning how they can leverage data to make better business decisions. Knowing how to use a ground-breaking tool like QlikView lets them show their future bosses what’s possible.”
