Solutions for increasing data diversity
In the era of digitization, digital facts for the real work and living environment are becoming more and more important. Although data has always been used to support entrepreneurial processes, growing data storages and continually improving possibilities for automated data analysis offer new and underutilized potential for entrepreneurial activity. Data scientists must also align themselves with application disciplines in order to provide optimal decision-making bases for companies.
- Top career opportunities due to the combination of technical expertise and application knowledge
- Training with real data and state-of-the-art evaluation tools
- Practice-oriented specialist knowledge for example in the following fields: visual analytics, big data processing, machine learning, business intelligence
- Application-oriented specialist knowledge for example in the following fields: leadership, project management, innovative business models, business ethics
- Big data application developer
- Data engineer
- Big data & BI consultant
- Data scientist
- Manager for data science teams
- Analyst for data science teams
- Specialist for business intelligence & analytics
At the center of the next digital revolution
This study program is interdisciplinary as it unites technical skills from information science, statistics, mathematics and related application disciplines. Graduates acquire ready-to-use skills in data and its underlying technologies, in application domains within the company context as well as in the development and implementation of innovative solutions for sustainable and profitable usage of acquired data. These four interlinked core aspects, which only unfurl their effects in joint usage constitute the essential driving forces behind the study program.
Focal points of the study program
- 54% technical knowledge in data science & intelligent analytics
- 13% management, leadership & business ethics
- 15% consolidation courses & application of data science
- 18% self-reliance & problem-solving skills
Master Data Science & Intelligent Analytics
The special challenge consists in achieving a sufficiently high degree of complexity in the observation of data and technology at which the effects of data science only become practically observable. In order to achieve this, the study program relies on problem-supported learning with practically relevant datasets and technology packages that are specifically developed for this purpose: data science labs (hardware & software, infrastructure and large datasets). The master study program conveys a portfolio of skills that address various sections of the value-added chain: from raw data and underlying interface functions (management, strategy and business ethics) to economic success.
Work compatible due to blended learning skill
The study program’s curriculum offers an integrated blended learning approach (30% of courses mix physical attendance courses with e-learning) and thereby additionally supports extra-occupational students. An independent learning management system, multimedia e-learning instruments and “virtual classrooms” are used. Suitable teaching content can be processed outside of physical attendance phases in a location-independent manner, which reduces physical attendance and travel times and ensures increased compatibility with working life. Additionally, the teaching quality for physical attendance courses is increased as more space is available for exercises, discussions and other forms of interactive learning (more information about the eLearning Center).
The development of this study program has been made possible by the regional management KUUSK with funding by the Leader Program.
