Data Science and Entrepreneurship in short

  • 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.
