Career opportunities

Transforming data into insights that can enhance decision-making is a key challenge for companies of every size, across all industries.

Be it the travel industry, technology, retail, healthcare, manufacturing, consulting, banking, finance, or insurance, data generated from market interaction is being used to determine and influence trends and gain a competitive edge over other players in the field. Companies are therefore looking for experts who have the capacity to use data to make informed strategic decisions. The same is true in government. Being able to minimize costs while at the same time deliver better services to citizens requires making the most of the information available.

Graduates from the MSc in Data Analytics and Business Economics are at a competitive advantage as organizations are looking for people who are not only fluent in the language of data but who also understand how to apply that data in the business-economic context. This layered skillset enables them to communicate effectively with clients, programmers, managers, data scientists, and policy makers to drive strategic decision-making.
