Every great thing starts a little scary, doesn't it? It seems like only yesterday I was stepping into the Barcelona GSE study room for the first time, and also just like yesterday that I heard my name called for the master thesis presentation. But what I have so vivid in my memory is the hope that this master would change my career path. And it did. Attending the Data Science master courses gave me the right mix of skills that any employer would value. Not long after graduating, I found myself with 5 very interesting job offers to choose from, any one of which would have given me the opportunity to dig deeper into machine learning, text mining, data visualization, and the statistical techniques I studied at the BGSE. If I had the chance, I would do it all over again!
