Why study Business Data Science?

Challenging new research opportunities 

The availability of big data from a growing range of interconnected, interactive, and interoperable devices and the concurrent development of powerful quantitative techniques are giving rise to new perspectives and paradigms in the field of business. To leverage these opportunities, there is an increasing demand for highly trained specialists who can extract insights out of big data to solve business-related problems. The BDS courses tie the foundations of data science directly to different business fields.

Jumpstart for PhD trajectory

The program is a two-year research master (120 EC) aiming to train future PhD students who will start their doctorate at one of the Schools in business and economics of the three partner universities. The program helps students to jumpstart their PhD trajectory not only through solid training, but also with direct experience in research (provided during the seminars, research clinic, research hackathons, skill workshops, thesis, interaction with faculty, research assistantships opportunities), and teaching (e.g., teaching assistantships opportunities). 

Focus on Data Science

The program has a strong focus on data science, presented to the students at a higher theoretical level than in a traditional master program.

Focus on preferred specialization 

In year 2, students focus on a given business sub-discipline, selecting from among: 1) finance, 2) entrepreneurship and innovation, 3) marketing science, 4) human resources and organization, 5) logistics and supply chain. The courses have been carefully selected by a team of experts with the aim of ensuring the perfect learning trajectory in each subfield.

Small-scale program

Admissions are highly selective and competitive. A maximum of 30 students are annually admitted to the BDS Research Master program. The class-size limit of 30 students guarantees a high level of interaction in the classroom, detailed feedback from faculty, and the support of a strong cohort.

Scholarships and tuition waivers available

For talented students scholarships and tuition waivers are available. Please inform the Director of Graduate Studies if you want to be considered for funding by BDS. If you need assistance in applying for external funding: contact the admissions officer
