Markus Nutz, Data Scientist, OBI Group Holding
"Before joining the program, I worked as a marketresearcher but switched to a data scientist position during the program. What I like most about the courses is that you can learn new concepts in a relatively short time and apply them directly at work. I’d recommend the program to anyone working with data and wanting to understand why their data, be it big or small, is probably not objective or raw, and wanting to enable themselves and others to be better at data-driven decision-making."
Silvija Guzelyte, Policy Officer Defence Data Analysis, European Defence Agency
"As I wanted to continue working full-time, my main criterion for an educational program was ﬂexibility. Now, at the point of graduating from the program, I can ﬁrmly say that it has far exceeded my expectations: it provided me with a solid background in statistics and data science; it allowed me to continue studying even after my daughter was born; and it made me feel part of a wider data science community. Last but not least, it enabled me to join NATO International Staff, Defence Planning Directorate, as Principal Economic and Financial Data Analyst."
Malik Hebbat, Research Assistant, Deutsche Bundesbank
"All my expectations have been met so far. The ability to solve complex problems by applying well-founded survey methods and making innovative suggestions for the team to process are but a few of the possibilities made available to me in the courses of the program. I would recommend the program to anyone dealing with microdata and open to fresh ideas as well as an exchange with an international community of competent experts."
