The demand is growing rapidly. Business savvy data scientists with collaborative skills, solving real-world data science problems are hard to find. Now the first 16 students of Frankfurt School´s new programme Master in Applied Data Science have arrived on campus. In the four- semester-programme they will learn to tackle exactly these problems with a combination of applied machine learning, data science and business problem solving.
Loa Marx from Ludwigshafen is one of the new students. Equipped with a Bachelor in Business Informatics, she grew more and more interested in Frankfurt School´s Master in Applied Data Science programme: “With big data, artificial intelligence and machine learning comes an incredible potential to apply this knowledge professionally. This is not something exclusively for nerds. It will grow increasingly important for all of us.“
Once she finishes her Master´s degree from Frankfurt School, Loa Marx intends to start a career in data analytics, eventually in management. She was surprised by her fellow MADS students, because of the diversity, the internationality, and the different educational backgrounds.
