        The Master in Data Management Covers a very interesting technical aspect of the field, and is delivered by faculty primarily from Engineering schools who enable us to complete our knowledge in the area. The work-study format (three days spent in a company and two in classes) gives us sufficient time to assimilate the lessons learnt from the previous week, apply the skills acquired in a company, and also prepare our questions for the following classes on issues that may appear complicated to us.

        In this way, the Master has provided me with a unique opportunity as, in addition to developing the skills you acquire in a business school, you also learn about the technical aspects that will be asked of you in your future career.
