This paper discusses the exploitation of open data in course projects for business information students. Open data has been used for several years in teaching business intelligence for second-year students of business information technology. Alternatives for using open data would be the use of teacher-created data, educational example data from a commercial software provider or proprietary data from a company. All of the aforementioned data types prove to be challenging when the goal is to offer students project-based learning with authentic and reuse permitting data. This paper provides a description of a model for a course on business intelligence that extensively uses open data. It presents an example of a successful course project implementing the model. Lastly, the experiences and feedback from all stakeholders that took part in the course implementation are presented.
