OVERVIEW

Digital has changed the game for sports business forever. Teams, leagues and federations no longer compete with each other; the new competitors are digitally-based activities such as social media, video streaming and gaming. Some analysts have even observed sport to be the most disrupted of all industries. 

Digital is more about aligning strategy and the organization to behaviours and expectations of modern fans than it is about technology. 

Ultimately, digital is about growth and therefore 'Managing Digital Transformation in Sports' has been purposely developed for football and sport organisations to explain the digital challenge to sports leaders, managers and professionals in a way that will enable organization and career growth.  

It is a modern reality that whilst business models in sports are still adjusting to the new data and fan-first reality of the digital era, a new breed of technologies such as virtual and augmented reality have arrived to push the economy further into competition for personalized and immersive experiences. 

 Through all of this volatility, the principles that are needed to navigate digital disruption in our own roles and organizations are now understood.

Big Data and Data Engineering

Big data has turned out to have giant potential, but poses major challenges at the same time. On the one hand, big data is driving the next stage of technological innovation and scientific discovery. Accordingly, big data has been called the “gold” of the digital revolution and the information age. On the other hand, the global volume of data is growing at a pace which seems to be hard to control. In this light, it has been noted that we are “drowning in a sea of data”.

Faced with these prospects and risks, the world requires a new generation of data specialists. Data engineering is an emerging profession concerned with big data approaches to data acquisition, data management and data analysis. Providing you with up-to-date knowledge and cutting-edge computational tools, data engineering has everything that it takes to master the era of big data.

Program Features

The Data Engineering program is located at Jacobs University, a private and international English-language academic institution in Bremen, Germany. The two-year program offers a fascinating and profound insight into the foundations, methods and technologies of big data. Students take a tailor-made curriculum comprising lectures, tutorials, laboratory trainings and hands-on projects. Embedded into a vibrant academic context, the program is taught by renowned experts. In a unique setting, students also team up with industry professionals in selected courses. Core components of the program and areas of specialization include:

- The Big Data Challenge

- Data Analytics

- Big Data Bases and Cloud Services

- Principles of Statistical Modeling

- Data Acquisition Technologies

- Big Data Management

- Machine Learning

- Semantic Web and Internet of Things

- Data Visualization and Image Processing

- Document Analysis

- Internet Security and Privacy

- Legal Aspects of Data Engineering and Data Ethics

For more details on the Data Engineering curriculum, please visit the program website at http://www.jacobs-university.de/data-engineering.

Career Options

Demand for data engineers is massive – in industry, commerce and the public sector. From IT to finance, from automotive to oil and gas, from health to retail: companies and institutions in almost every domain need experts for data acquisition, data management and data analysis. With an MSc degree in Data Engineering, you will excel in this most exciting and rewarding field with very attractive salaries. Likewise, an MSc degree in Data Engineering allows you to move on to a PhD and to a career in science an research.

Application and Admission

The Data Engineering program starts in the first week of September every year. Please visit http://www.jacobs-university.de/graduate-admission or use the contact form to request details on how to apply. We are looking forward to receiving your inquiry.

About UBC Journalism

UBC Journalism is a unique, boutique journalism masters program in one of the most beautiful, diverse and progressive cities in the world. It is one of only four masters-only journalism programs in North America, and the only graduate journalism program in western Canada.

Faculty members come from the highest levels of major media organizations, as well as leaders in digital journalism and media scholarship. We pride ourselves on our one-on-one approach with students, working closely with the aspiring journalists who go through our program, and often continuing to mentor them long after they graduate.

The Master of Journalism degree is a full-time, intensive program that runs over five semesters, including a summer internship. It is designed to provide graduates with professional experience and academic grounding, to help students succeed as a journalist in any medium. Students learn everything from long-form writing to web, video and audio production, social media analytics, investigative reporting skills and critical analysis of news.

Our distinctive approach to journalism education has two components: academic specialization and applied training. This involves creating a program of study focused on an academic area — relevant to your background and interests —along with courses in media theory and ethics. Paired with the academic training is hands-on work with professional equipment alongside experienced professionals.

Students have the opportunity to study with excellent scholars in disciplines throughout the University of British Columbia, a university consistently ranked in the top 40 academic institutions in the world.

The Graduate School is modeled on a small Liberal Arts college with small class sizes and one-on-one attention. Students have contact with professors both in and outside of the classroom on a regular basis. Faculty and staff mentor students on freelancing opportunities, international internships and career options.

Degree Requirements

The program of study for the M.J. degree in Journalism is challenging and requires full-time study. Students are required to complete between 42-45 credits of course work, including a three-month internship.

Students learn to be journalists across all media — print, online, television and radio — in the first year. Most programs separate training by medium. We believe that in today’s digital environment, graduate journalists have to be proficient across many media platforms.

Therefore, theory and practice are integrated across the curriculum. This means applying ethics, media theory and academic knowledge to the journalism skills of interviewing and reporting in a real-time multimedia environment.

Journalism training starts in the first week of classes when students are assigned urban beats in Vancouver as part of our core Integrated Journalism course. This course is taught by a team of faculty: senior journalists working both locally and internationally as well as media studies professors.

Theory and graduate-level research is integrated into the curriculum through assignments and course content, as well as in specific courses such as Media Ethics and Media Law. There is also an option to complete an academic research or thesis project.

Specialization

Students specialize in key disciplines relevant to their professional careers. These include but are not limited to: environmental and health studies, international relations and political science, arts and cultural studies, English, sports, economics and science.

Students also engage issues surrounding race, gender and ethnicity through partnerships with other UBC departments.

Students take these specialties in courses outside of the School in order to obtain the knowledge necessary to report on an increasingly complex public sphere.

Popular academic specialties include: International Journalism and Political Science, New Media and Society, Solutions-Focused journalism and Science Journalism, which includes specialties in environment, health and social issues, as well as media theory.
