Horizons University is introducing a new student and faculty resourceBusiness Insights: Global (BIG)The business intelligence service is now part of the resources offered to our enrolled business students and faculty

What is it, exactly, and how does it work?

BIG is a highly performant database designed especially for business oriented researchers. It is now readily available via our online learning portal, Moodle. You simply need to log into your Moodle account using your dedicated Username and Password and click on e-libraries. 

BIG stands out thanks to its user-friendly interface and minimalistic design. It will help you reach the requested contents quickly and navigate just as smoothly, suggesting linked terms and articles, helping you see the big picture, relate, analyze and assess the information. BIG interconnects facts and figures, bringing to you premium and authoritative resources you can use in a memoir or dissertation, or in that new course you are passionately designing!

Whether you are a business student or a faculty member, you have now access to a whole range of documents: news, reports, interactive charts, case studies, statistics and data sets.

We are thinking BIG and hope that you will too thanks to this new resource!
