Lectures are held from Wednesday to Friday in the first year, only one day a week in the 3rd semester, and in a block of five weeks at the start of the 4th semester.

Did you know, …

… that there is great demand for experts in data and information analysis?

Most companies have a huge amount of electronically stored information. Even if data warehouses have been established, the stored information is often not used professionally, e.g. using methods of data condensation, processing and development. These companies need experienced professionals who use their data to generate information and knowledge for decision-making documents, regular analyses or for process control.
