About this course

Data Scientist has been famously described as the job with the highest potential of the 21st century. Why? On the one hand side, the field offers a diverse mix of capabilities, skills and corresponding opportunities for specialisation that never gets boring. On the other hand, data science, i.e. the generation of insights and value from raw data is the fulcrum of truly digital businesses across all sectors. Here, data informs not only the optimization of existing processes. Even more importantly, it is the key enabler of entirely new business models.

Our international bachelor programme is an ideal opportunity to acquire the relevant skill-set, getting a headstart on your competition. Our graduates are going to take implementing roles in the current data revolution.
