IE University and Michael Page renew €200,000

The IE University Exponential Learning - Michael Page scholarships are aimed at both recently graduated juniors and experienced profiles who want to change their career path.

IE University Exponential Learning and Michael Page have renewed their €200,000 scholarship fund to boost talent in Data Science. These scholarships will be aimed at recently graduated juniors who want to deepen their specialization as data scientists, as well as experienced profiles who want to change their career path towards a profession with high employability or make a qualitative leap in this area of expertise. The objective of this program is to provide participants with the tools and knowledge to become expert data science professionals and be at the forefront of data, the industry of the future.

The IE University scholarships are for the four IE University Exponential Learning Data Science Bootcamps that last between 12 and 21 weeks with intakes in English and Spanish. This new edition will include the IE Summer Data Science Bootcamp, in July, with a preparatory and complementary format to the core program. The scholarships may be full or partial, and young professionals will be able to benefit from them during this academic year.

With 11 years behind them, IE University’s Data Science Bootcamps are immersive training programs, which in a short period requiring dedication, provide expertise in the discipline of data science, leveraging real cases with datasets provided by companies such as IBERIA, ENDESA and MRM McCANN, among others.

Around 40% of the professionals who attend these bootcamps are looking for a change in the type of work they do. This academic year will also include exclusive sessions on employability and differentiation in the job market for bootcampers, taught by Michael Page consultants. Data Science Bootcamps recruiters include INVESTING.COM, NIELSEN, NEXTAIL, among others.

“We believe that the language of data is as necessary as English in the business world. Companies need to strengthen their data analysis capabilities for better decision making. Therefore, from IE Exponential Learning we seek to facilitate access to the labor market that will bring more than one million new digital and technology jobs in Europe.”

Teresa Martín-Retortillo, President of IE University Exponential Learning

“The acceleration of digital transformation in companies is causing an increase in the demand for digital skills from candidates, among which data management and analysis stand out. Education is key to developing talent and meeting market demands, which is why PageGroup is committed to initiatives that bring training closer to and link it to the current needs of companies,” says Jaime Asnai González, CEO of PageGroup in Spain.

The application process for the scholarships will be open up until three weeks before the start of each call at www.ie.edu/bootcamps.
