Use data and algorithms to achieve business success

Are you keen to harness the power of data science, statistics, and machine learning to optimize results and achieve strategic objectives? Ready to combine insights from mathematics, computer science, and economics with highly developed communication skills? The Master’s program in Business Analytics will deepen your knowledge - making you key to the success of any organization.

The program has four tracks, giving you the opportunity to specialize in your own area of interest:

  1. Optimization of Business Processes
  2. Computational Intelligence
  3. Financial Risk Management
  4. Research

You’ll finish with a six-month internship at a company, which is often the first step to a thriving career.

Use the power of data science, big data, statistics, and machine learning to maximize your impact.

The Master’s in Business Analytics is a two-year program, divided into four semesters.

In your first semester, you’ll take a number of core compulsory courses. During the second and third semesters, you’ll focus on your own specialization. Finally, in the fourth semester, you’ll spend six months doing an internship at a business or research institute, giving you first-hand experience of the working world.

During the program, you’ll learn all about mathematical modeling and how to apply it in practice (including at financial institutions), how to make predictions using machine learning and statistics, how to analyze data and recognize data patterns and structures, and how to build a complete decision support system as part of a group project.

You’ll also learn valuable professional skills, including scientific writing and presentation skills, as well as communication and teamwork as part of an interdisciplinary team. Finally, you’ll combine your business analytics knowledge with your professional skills in practice during your traineeship.
