Master's Degree in Data Science: Data Science for Decision Making Program

The ability to extract, handle, and analyse large amounts of data is therefore a key skill on today’s job market.

However, gathering and summarizing data is not enough. Data science can only improve decision making with an understanding of how choices affect outcomes. Data Scientists must therefore increasingly combine standard tools in machine learning with an understanding of the causal relationships behind the data.

Master's Degree in Data Science: Data Science Methodology Program

The digital revolution brings an explosion of data with significant value for businesses, science, and society. As data becomes larger and more complex, extracting useful quantitative insights becomes more challenging.

The Master's prepares graduates to design and build data-driven systems in the private, public and research sectors. The curriculum guides students from modelling and theory to computational practice and cutting edge tools, teaching skills that are in growing global demand.
