We offer a selection of profiles for Health, Government & Public Sector, Industry, Professional Services and Mobility. But you are free to choose and pick-up any subject that interests you, to gain a solid grounding in the field of data science. 

* Electives are continuously updated and subject to change, depending of the interest of the group.

Challenge-based learning
We believe that the best way to learn is by doing. Hence our programs contain challenges at each stage. Real challenges make learning motivating, helps to get your organization involved, and is a catalyst to achieving real impact. During the program, you complete three CRISP-DM data-science projects:
