Data Science and Entrepreneurship
Combine management, entrepreneurship and business models with deep knowledge on data science methods from mathematics, statistics and computer science. Learn to understand their limitations with regard to the law, regulations, and ethical considerations. Profit from the unique key strengths of both Eindhoven University of Technology and Tilburg University.
Program and courses
Combine the technological know-how of Eindhoven with the business, legal and societal insights of Tilburg. This synergy ensures that we educate data science-driven entrepreneurs who have the capability to create, develop and market data technologies, conduct research, and present results in a clear, non-technical manner.
- Combine data science courses with courses that address the entrepreneurship pillar of the program. Incorporate theories and concepts from legal and ethical aspects of business venturing, intellectual property, and ethical and privacy aspects of data.
- Apply data entrepreneurship in building a technology startup, in which you and your team use data-driven methods to test the feasibility of an idea/innovation, build a data-intensive product/solution, propose sales channels and customers, and develop entrepreneurial skills in building a technology startup.
- Solve actual problems with real datasets from industrial partners. Representatives will actively work with our professors to coach the student teams.
Study at two universities
- Offering you the best of both worlds: a campus life in the heart of a bustling city, and a place where students, researchers and industry join forces. Elective courses may require traveling to either Eindhoven or Tilburg.
- The compulsory part of the program will be held in the vibrant Mariënburg Campus, a former convent in the city of 's Hertogenbosch. The campus offers an intimate yet cosmopolitan setting for its international student community.
- For business ventures and startups initiated by students, we’ve created special on-campus spaces. It’s here where students, researchers, startups and business interact to tackle urgent industry and societal questions.
Typical courses are:
- Data Integration and Architecture
- Data Mining
- Business Process Management
- Data Entrepreneurship
- Creative Thinking and Open Innovation
According to a Harvard study, the profession of Data Scientist is the ‘sexiest job’ of the 21st century. In other words: the skills that you will have as Data Scientist are in exceptionally high demand.
The career opportunities are sheer endless. You can work as Data Scientist in multinationals or manage your own data science company; finding new markets and opportunities with data. Within an organization, you are the one who translates questions into technical data insights and vice versa.
