What business intelligence tools are most important to learn today?

I am a recent MBA and I am looking to educate myself in business intelligence (BI), specifically in BI software. What BI software, tools or products do you recommend that I invest and educate myself in?

Congratulations on completing your MBA. It is difficult to say what BI tools to study since it really depends on number of factors. I think more importantly make sure you understand the concepts of the reporting tools since they are pretty similar. The major BI tools are Business Objects, Cognos, Microstrategy, and Microsoft's Reporting Services SSRS.
