The Master of Science in Marketing Analysis from Ghent University is a one-year full-time study (or two-year part-time study) about predictive analytics for analytical Customer Relationship Management (CRM)/Business Intelligence topics in English covering data-mining techniques.
More specifically, the study mainly focuses on: Analytical Customer Relationship Management/customer intelligence (i.e., using data-mining techniques to uncover Knowledge in Databases (KDD)), as well as market/marketing research. Ghent University has been offering this high-level advanced-master degree since October 1999, which makes it the longest-running program in predictive analytics worldwide!
Our graduates all gained important positions in large and medium-sized companies around the world (from Brussels over London & Toronto to Singapore, Seoul and Shanghai). Most companies especially value the many practical skills our students acquired during the many real-life projects they performed during their study of the Master of Marketing Analysis. Since the academic year 2006-2007, MMA projects are also international. Apparently with a positive result, because all 6 MMA students involved were offered a job at DunnHumby Ltd. (London, UK) upon completion of the project. During the academic year 2007-2008, again four MMA students wrote their master thesis about a project at DunnHumby Ltd.
