Business Analytics Lab

Welcome to the Business Analytics Laboratory, established at the Department of Management Science and Technology of the Athens University of Economics and Business, and headed by Diomidis Spinellis. Here we research, develop, and disseminate software, systems, methods, and practices associated with the following areas.

  • Software engineering and management science applications of business analytics
  • Business analytics software and systems
  • Data analytics approaches for IT security
  • Industrial adoption of business analytics applications and systems
  • Optimization methods in business analytics
