Prospective candidates of the Joint Master Data Science and Entrepreneurship should be prepared to embark on a multi-disciplinary program, with students from multiple backgrounds, cultures and nationalities.
Become an entrepreneur or innovator
It is expected that students who decide to apply for this program have an intrinsic motivation to become an entrepreneur or innovator.
Since this program is not only about learning knowledge and skills, but also develop the personal traits that are generally believed to be critical to become successful, students should be open to this as well.
A solid background in data analysis and database technology
Last, but not least, this program requires students that are well equipped with BSc level knowledge and skills in the following two major domains: mathematics and statics - a.k.a. data analytics -, and programming and database technology a.k.a. data engineering.
Admission requirements for BSc students
All applications will be individually assessed by the admission committee. In general, we have devised a multi-facetted admission approach to cater for the specific backgrounds and entry qualifications of BSc students.
1. Direct admission
In most cases the following BSc programs meet the BSc-level entry requirements and can be directly admitted to the Joint Master's Program Data Science and Entrepreneurship:
In case of similar international BSc programs, admission will be checked by the admission committee.
2. Indirect Admission
Students with a BSc-level diploma in one of the following disciplines may be eligible to be enrolled directly into the Joint Master's Program Data Science and Entrepreneurship:
Mandatory electives or Pre-Master program
Admission depends for example on exactly which electives have been chosen in the respective programs and will be checked by the admission committee.
Depending on the “match” with the entry requirements, students may be either directly admitted to the Master's Program with mandatory electives to follow or be allowed to the Pre-Master program.
3. Not-Directly Qualified
Non-directly qualified students are typically BSc students from Gamma or Beta programs that have a substantial overlap of courses with the above-mentioned programs. Examples include: international management, business administration, economics, etc. Also excellent students with a Bachelor's Degree in Applied Science or "Hogeschool" are welcome to apply.
For these BSc and excellent BS students there is a Pre-Master program available.
Pre-Master program for Bachelor students of Vocational Education / "Hogeschool" level
We offer several pre-master options for BS students to eventually join our master's program. Please check out more information about your possibilities at our Pre-Master Program page:
Students are required to be proficient in spoken and written English. Applicants need to provide evidence of having achieved the required level by having one of the following qualifications:
