Interview

The reason I applied to the Data Science program is because I wanted to make a career shift. I felt that with all the hype around data science I needed a structured way to gain real knowledge in the field. I believe that the program at the Barcelona GSE was a perfect fit for me. Both the theoretical knowledge and practical skills I gained were exactly what I aimed for. We were challenged by the professors constantly and there was also a healthy amount of competition but the experience I gained made it completely worth the effort. A huge plus for me was that I got to do my internship at Telefonica Research which was an amazing place to learn about cutting-edge deep learning research. Also, I loved to live and be a student in Barcelona.
