The Data Science for Management Master is a First-Level International Master that offers students a comprehensive training, from a problem-solving perspective, in computational and statistical methods for management. The broad goal is to empower students to become Data Analyst and Business Analytics Managers, a rapidly expanding and highly rewarding job which takes advantage of the ongoing digital revolution.
The Master in Data Science for Management relies on an extensive network of companies and institutions that participate in the project providing teaching, case studies, mentoring and internship opportunities.
Students will acquire solid computational and statistical skills to tackle real business problems. The Master has been designed around eight core courses (structured in lectures, labs and seminars) that cover a variety of fields including: database systems and programming, statistics, text and web mining, data analytics and machine learning. Students acquire solid computational and statistical skills to tackle real business problems, exploring a variety of industry-standard tools (such as R, SAS and Python); they will so also be offered the opportunity to acquire the "Machine Learning with SAS Viya" certification.
Following the second term, students are presented with a variety of internship opportunities, typically with a partner company. Usually the internship lasts four to six months, and provides a unique opportunity to enhance student’s learning, technical skills, as well as team working. If successfully completed, the internship may lead to a job offer; it also represents a valuable experience when searching for a job.
The Faculty members of the Master Program are acclaimed professors affiliated with Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore as well as expert practitioners from business and industry.
