Program and courses

In the Master Data Science in Business and Entrepreneurship (DSBE) you cover all necessary disciplines to successfully apply data science in business and entrepreneurship in a responsible way. Data engineering is about designing systems handling the data infrastructure. Data analytics is about data science and AI models you run on the data. Since all models inevitably provide an output, interpreting, explaining, and interacting with this output is critical. That is why data-driven decision making is needed. Data-driven business development is about translating the models into business impact, supported by law and ethics that the first four disciplines need to align with.

Benefit from the combination of Tilburg University’s business, legal and societal insights with the technological know-how of Eindhoven University of Technology:

  • In almost all courses you apply data science techniques.
  • You can do more than one year of coursework in collaboration with businesses  providing real-life data challenges.
  • Study and work as part of a close-knit and interactive community of students, researchers and companies on Tilburg University's dedicated JADS (Jheronimus Academy of Data Science) campus in ‘s-Hertogenbosch.
  • Benefit from the support and encouragement by JADS Playground & MKB Datalab when starting your own business.

  • Deep Learning
  • Strategy and Business Models
  • Natural Language Processing
