Digitalisation is leading to great challenges for many companies. More and more data is converging within structures that can barely be analysed, processed or used without the right understanding and solution-oriented approaches. This is where data scientists or data analysts come into play. They understand the complexity of the data and use models for developing solutions and answering questions. In this way, they can generate target-oriented added value for their company based on their findings.
Within the Online Applied Business Data Science Master’s programme, students get a very realistic picture of what it takes to be a good data analyst and what potential employers are actually expecting. In order to become familiar with and apply the most important procedures and methods in the Applied Business Data Science M.Sc., real data from real companies is used. In the process, essential questions are addressed: how can one predict whether a customer will cancel a current contract at some point in the future or not? How can homogeneous customer segments be established within a customer database?
