Do you like coming up with elegant solutions for complex problems? Do you find it challenging to extract patterns from large sets of data? Then you should consider getting a master’s in Data Science for Decision Making. In today’s world, many companies and organisations collect all sorts of data. They aim to extract useful information from it, to recognise patterns and anomalies. Data Science for Decision Making provides the mathematical tools to model and handle these datasets. It has widespread applications in business and engineering, ranging from scheduling customer service agents and optimising supply chains, to modelling biological processes and extracting meaningful components from brain signals. Upon graduation, you'll therefore have excellent qualifications to pursue a career as a data scientist, researcher or manager in many different industries.


Data Science for Decision Making will familiarise you with methods, techniques and algorithms that can be used to address major issues in mathematical modelling and decision making. You will also get hands-on experience in applying this knowledge through computer classes, group research projects and the thesis research. The unique blend of courses will equip you with all the knowledge and skills you’ll need to have a successful career.


Data science and big data are very important to companies nowadays, and this programme will provide you with all the training you’ll need be active in these areas. The comprehensive education, practical skills and international orientation of the programme will open the world to you. When applying for positions, graduates from Data Science for Decision Making are often successful because of their problem-solving attitude, their modern scientific skills, their flexibility and their ability to model and analyse complex problems from a variety of domains.
