I have several years of working experience in the software industry as programmer, analyst, and project manager and a bachelor degree in Computer Science and Management Science from the University of Edinburgh. My interests in machine learning, computing, and finance led me in my decision to join the BGSE Data Science program.
I think the program perfectly balances theory and practice, thus not just equipping us with a thorough theoretical background in statistics, machine learning, and optimization, but also trains us on how to apply analytics in complex real-word problems, both in industry and academia. Classes are small with people coming from many different backgrounds and experiences. Overall, I feel very happy with the quality, the focus, and the depth of the program.
