The Mariënburg, a former convent in the historical center of Den Bosch, is JADS’ home. It’s a welcoming, inspirational and atmospheric environment for life-long learning, with the former chapel functioning as the main auditorium, and the vast complex offering many surprising authentic details reminiscent of its former function.

Your curriculum:

  • Leading data science: winning support and realizing your organization’s data ambitions
  • Data management and data governance
  • Data entrepreneurship: developing novel business models driven by data and analytics
  • Anomaly detection
  • Process mining
  • Advanced data architectures
  • Electives program: professors and experts offer a varied program of deep‐dives, from which you select two courses
  • Two‐day bootcamp where you do a hackathon with your classmates.
  • Professional skills: Lectures and individual coaching in taking a leading role in the development of your organization’s data ambitions.
  • In‐company project supported by JADS professors and experts.

We believe in Data Scientists being T-shaped professionals

The T shape visualizes the idea that a successful career is based on the combination of deep technical expertise (the vertical bar) and wide and broad boundary-crossing skills (the horizontal bar).

Data scientists master the technical skills of data engineering, and know how to use data-warehouses, build a data pipeline and access Big Data cloud solutions. They have the analytical skills of machine learning, and can translate a business opportunity into a data-science problem, apply the data-analytic workflow to develop a model, and test and implement it in a Python environment.

Data scientists are also business savvy, understand how business models and strategies work, are able to manage data-science projects delivering results, and in general, know what it takes to get things done in large and complex organizations.
