Students acquire solid computational and statistical skills to tackle real business problems.

The Master in Data Science for Management relies on an extensive network of companies and institutions that participate to the project providing teaching, case studies, mentoring and internship opportunities.

Following the second term, students are in fact presented with a variety of internship opportunities, typically with a partner company.

If successfully completed, the internship may lead to a job offer; it also represents a valuable experience when searching for a job.
