Colleges starting to offer business intelligence degrees

Interesting video on eWeek.com called Business Intelligence Takes Higher Education Students to the Head of the Class that talks about how colleges are noticing that there is a high demand for employees with business intelligence and analytics expertise, and are now offering these courses and degrees.  The colleges are also using these solutions to cut their own costs, improve patient care, and benefit the environment.

The video mentions the need for employees with BI and analytics skills is expected to grow 20 percent through 2018.
