During your first year, you’ll go through an introductory phase focused on the foundations of liberal sciences. You’ll learn about research methods and how they can be applied to solve technology-related problems through data, as well as issues in social and behavioral sciences. During this first year you’ll also study the fundamentals of business, statistics, technology and programming that you’ll need to become a successful data scientist.
In your second year, you’ll study the latest technologies and tools available in the market that can be used to exploit the power of data.

You’ll also gain the in-depth statistics and mathematics knowledge you’ll need to interpret and analyze data. Finally, you’ll participate in workshops and boot camps that will help you develop teamwork and other soft skills to build a strong professional profile.
During your third year, you’ll dive into the data analytics technologies needed to harness the power of data. You’ll take hands-on classes in which you’ll learn by applying recommendation engines, advanced machine learning, cloud computing, semantic analysis, artificial intelligence and parallel computing technologies to real-world challenges. In this year you’ll also participate in a datathon: an intensive competition where you’ll have to apply all that you’ve learned up to this point in order to solve a real business problem by using, crunching and analyzing data.
In your last year, you’ll be exposed to the professional world through specializations oriented toward certain careers. You’ll be able to choose from a range of electives and courses, selecting those that will help you on your own path toward your favored area or industry.
