Increasing quantities of data are being generated across numerous industries and service provision areas and the international Project Management & Data Science Master’s Programme was developed in order to tackle the shortage of qualified staff in this area. Data related to customers, markets and competitors is extremely important in today’s commercial landscape. Sensitive and responsible handling of data is an important success factor for all manner of companies. “Big Data” – the intelligent management of large and simultaneously heterogeneous data – is one of the biggest commercial challenges of our times.
