Applied Data Science (M.Sc.)

Study information

Your part-time Master's program at NORDAKADEMIE includes practice-relevant content developed together with the business community and a three-month, interdisciplinary practical project. As a result, you will achieve a broad-based qualification in all essential areas of Applied Data Science. The study modules include:

Basic modules

  • Data Science Project Organizations
  • Sustainable business management
  • Statistical Methods
  • Scientific work & ethics

Mandatory modules

  • Data Mining
  • Data Management
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Machine Learning
  • Multivariate Data Analysis
  • Reporting and Visualization

This learning content enables you to select suitable analysis methods, to perform basic analyses independently using suitable software, and to provide support for complex analyses.
In addition, you can choose from a wide range of elective courses on topics such as IT project management, process mining, or text analytics.

You can also participate in a study trip to India, South Africa or China and optionally in the International Week of the IPADE Business School in Mexico.

It takes five months to complete your master's thesis. 

Your Master's degree program is blended learning with classroom sessions and self-study phases. The NORDAKADEMIE  provides you with all learning materials online and offline and also supervises you personally.

Four to six weeks before your first lecture, you will receive access to the first study materials. At the beginning of your studies, you will also receive your student ID card.

Consistent study groups enable you to have an intensive exchange and excellent cooperation. In the Master's project, you will also work together in interdisciplinary teams. All modules follow one another in time with subsequent examinations. This means that you only have to prepare for one exam at a time.

If, due to your personal or professional situation, it is not possible for you to complete your studies in the standard period of study, you can extend your study period by eight months free of charge.

Our recommendation: When comparing the tuition fees of private universities, you should always look out for "hidden" costs, e.g. for enrollment, exams or study time extensions. If providers do not disclose these fees or only inform you about them after you have been entered in a list of prospective students, you will often be charged above-average fees.

A Master's degree in Applied Data Science at NORDAKADEMIE opens up excellent career prospects for you - because experts in this field are in demand worldwide. 

As a graduate of our program, you will be able to plan, organize and manage data science projects. You will have an accomplished data competence and will always have the big picture in mind. Your actions will focus on the goals of the company. 

As a link between divisional and analysis experts, you will be a competent contact person for management and analysis tasks. There are also many opportunities for you to specialize - for example, in strategic or operational consulting tasks or data science project management.
