About

Our Master in Big Data Analytics from Carlos III University of Madrid is oriented towards the (re)training of professionals with responsibilities related to data analytics, and in particular of those involved with the evaluation of very large volumes of data in their companies.

Particular emphasis will be placed on the use of data storage and processing paradigms such as MapReduce or noSQL and their implementations (Hadoop, Storm, etc.), as well as cloud storing and computing methodologies. The courses will also introduce applications based on analytic languages such as R and Python.

This knowledge will prepare them to handle large data sets and to conduct complex statistical and computational analysis of these data, to obtain results in pattern identification, forecasting, simulation or optimization, relevant for the improvement of the efficiency in the activities of their companies and organizations.

As an illustration of this potential demand, the French government expects that the needs for professionals with these qualifications during the coming five years on the whole of the EU will be in excess of 300,000 persons.

In Spain, the use of these techniques is expected to increase by at least 300% in the next three years, while 11% of Spanish companies have expressed a potential interest in their application, compared to the 5% currently using them.
