You will also hone advanced skills connected with machine learning techniques for extracting predictive patterns and models from digital data.

Launching your career

As a graduate equipped with solid theoretical and practical training, you will be an asset to companies who are not only seeking to generate a competitive advantage, but also to create new business models. You will be ready for career opportunities in the tertiary sector and public administration - for example, working in the development and management of innovative, data-based services - or in the scientific, technological, biological or healthcare fields, supporting sector specialists. Alternatively, you could choose to work in the economics and finance sector, managing complex valuation and pricing models.
