Robert Lange '17 has an undergraduate degree in Economics from the University of Cologne.
He attended the first Barcelona Data Science Meeting in 2016 and has participated in the Barcelona GSE Data Science Summer School and the Barcelona GSE Macroeconometrics Summer School.
Personally, I think the Data Science Program at the BGSE is probably the best developed Data Science program in Europe. My first impressions are amazing. The people who teach are the best at what they do, they are so motivated and are able to motivate us, and I'm really happy with that.
I expect to be trained at a really high level to be able to compete with other people in academia as well as industry. I expect the professor to train me on the highest academic level that's currently available. I expect they will give me tasks that I'm not able to solve the first time I try them.
