Collaborate with master students in challenge-based courses

Engage students with real-world challenges

Bring real-life data challenges from your company into the classroom and collaborate with students enrolled in our MSc program. Benefit from fresh perspectives and interact with budding talent in data science trained at our institution.

Our MSc programs offer challenge-based courses where students tackle industry challenges using data engineering, analytics, and entrepreneurship principles. We invite your company to propose a concrete data challenge along with a relevant dataset for our students to analyze.

Get inspired and interact with groups of students

In the challenge-based courses, student teams of 4-5 members work closely for six months on a project provided by your organization. Throughout the program, there are multiple touchpoints where students engage with your company to discuss project progress and share insights. This collaborative approach benefits both students and your organization, fostering innovation and yielding tangible outcomes.
