I am Italian, and I work in Luxembourg for the EU institutions.

Last year I finished my Executive MBA and I wanted to continue my studies. I liked the format of the Data Science Bootcamp and the institution’s strong reputation, and I was especially fascinated by the magical things that can be done with data nowadays, such as natural text language or machine learning. 

I have more than 20 years of work experience in banking and economics, and I’ve observed that very few people invest in their studies past their forties, which I think is wrong. I manage huge datasets (on economics and climate) and I wanted to learn more about it and stay updated on the novelties of my field. The Data Science Bootcamp at IE Executive Education was the perfect choice.

I’m completing the Bootcamp completely online, though I hope to be able to come to Madrid a couple of times. It’s hard for me to manage my studies, the challenges of my work (10-11 hours a day), my business trips, and my family, but I always find some strength and time in the evening to dedicate to the Bootcamp.

We’ve been learning coding, statistics, and agile methodology, among other topics. And as far as I’m concerned, the most interesting things—including machine learning—are yet to come.
