What will I learn?

As a data scientist you answer all kind of questions for the management. You search inside and outside the organisation in large amounts of available data. You present your answers on dashboards and via visualisations, so the management can see at once whether or not the warehouse routing can be improved, what the competition is doing and what customers want. From this role, you also learn to be the linchpin between business and IT. You advise on:

Business: how can IT improve my organisation? How can we increase revenues with this new IT?

Builders: what IT should we build?

Users: How can IT be used to work faster, smarter and make it more fun?

IT Services: How will IT run as smooth as possible?

Both aspects intertwine: you provide the business with better information, but you only can create valuable information if you understand the business and maintain a constructive relationship with them. Innovating with IT is only possible with business insights. During the programme you develop the analytical skills of a data scientist. You learn to work with data and to create business value out of it. Being aware of the costs and revenues of generating data and transforming it into information.
