Abstract. The paper presents considerations on the concept of big data. The aim of the paper is to confront the attempts of defining big data with its common understanding by different groups of users. In this research the group of respondents are students of Warsaw University of Economics. The authors advocate that the student's opinion and attitude to big data can be important regarding the fact that they will probably become managers - business users of big data solutions. Another aim is the analysis of present educational offerings of Polish universities in the area of big data and suggesting the directions of the development of educational curricula to better fit the marked demand for big data professionals.
