There’s a global consensus on the idea that data stand as the coin in today’s business landscape, and will be the driver shaping the fourth industrial revolution.
Indeed, in the current so-called second machine age we are seeing the rise of new types of business models, corporate competences, customer-focused processes and managerial skills build around data science.
Companies require professionals that understand that data management and business analytics are deeply embedded in both traditional business models transitioning to new competitive approaches and digital natives alike.
Experienced data scientists, instead of digital newbies, will be playing a key role in leading corporate growth in the years ahead, understanding industry-specific drivers of success and leading the information-based transformation.
Why study MDSBA at Aspire Business School?
The ASPIRE Master in Data Science and Business Analytics has been designed to provide a cutting-edge perspective on how data analytics and information-based management is key in leading corporate success. The program content combines a deep specialization with an applied perspective on how data affects traditional and new business models, supported by an outstanding base of professionals with real experience in a variety of industries and corporate processes.
The Aspire’s MDSBA focuses on a set complimentary goals.
The methodology used in the programs of ASPIRE is based on the combination of practical training and theoretical knowledge, and further requires the active participation of students with their opinions and views. Based on this, all participants are encouraged to analyze and solve case studies based on real and simulated business situations for training purposes. The Student participation and teamwork are an essential element in the development of the program. This deepens and enriches the training, as it complements the diversity of opinions and experiences of the participants. In this sense, good teamwork is essential in the development, preparation and presentation of the Business Plan as the FMT project in which all the skills and knowledge acquired during the development of the program are integrated.
