MSc in Data Science and Analytics

MSc in Data Science and Analytics will introduce students to different data science disciplines and practices and give them an opportunity to reflect on their own approach. This methodology gives students the opportunity to experience all disciplines of data science offered by Universum College and lets the students decide the one direction they feel more confident at. Not only does this approach help students find their true potential, but it also equips them with skills in different data science disciplines making them more capable in the job market, while making it easier to adapt to it. More skills gained equals to more employable graduates. The program is a reflection of the job market in Kosovo, where engineering and science companies offer a diverse set of services that are not restricted to one discipline of data science.
