Things you will like

  • Challenge-based learning: teaching does not start from theory and technology, but from a real challenge, either for a business or society or personal. Taking a real challenge as a point of departure makes learning motivating, helps in getting your company or organization involved, and is a catalyst to achieving real impact.
  • The Mariënburg, a former convent in the historical center of Den Bosch, is JADS’s 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.

Do you fit the profile?

You have a HBO or WO degree and affinity with analytics and IT, and the ambition to learn basic programming skills. You have the ambition to grow in a more senior professional position, combining technical expertise with boundary-crossing skills in leadership, entrepreneurship, complex problem solving and critical thinking. You want to explore how you can contribute to implement a data driven approach to your organisation.

Data scientists are 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). JADS’s Professional Program trains T-shaped data scientists, who master the technical skills of data engineering and data analytics, and who 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.

The JADS Community

The JADS Community: upon entering your program, you will be part of the JADS Community of companies, students, startups, professionals, NGOs and academic staff, who all have a passion for data science. We organize network events, inspirational talks and many other activities. It’s also a market for finding business partners and expert help for a data challenge. The Community embodies our belief in the importance of life-long learning.

Teaching in Covid times …

We’ve created a welcoming and warm online teaching environment, which we use as long as the covid situation prevents classroom teaching. Instructors and teaching technologies are adjusted to online teaching. We miss the friendly and inspirational atmosphere of our historic campus, but the teaching effectiveness of online course matches that of classroom teaching!
