FROM THE VICE DEAN
“At IE University, we believe that data is the current and future source of competitive advantage. That’s the difference between failure and success for a company right now. All young data scientists need to have knowledge in terms of how to use the data, how to extract value from the data, and not only that, but how to gather data from different sources to make meaningful decisions. Basically, it’s all about changing a culture from the current status quo to a data-driven, decision-making culture”
