The Big Data Analysis specialization, on our Master in Finance and Accounting studies, is a two-year program conducted in English, which is held in collaboration with industry experts from global companies. The studies simultaneously prepare students to work in big data in the finance field. Aside from extensive finance knowledge, practical technical skills will be taught, such as identifying, collecting, analysing, interpreting, and transforming data, in order to face big data challenges in financial world. Furthermore, new trends in both areas will be presented, from venture capital to cloud computing.
Taking part in this unique Big Data program enables students to link theory with practice - simultaneously gaining professional experience. From the first semester on, each student gets the chance to work with an assigned university mentor as well as company mentor to tackle the finance big data world. The partnership with global Big Data companies is a key asset of the program. Apart from excellent networking opportunities, classes are to some extend conducted by practitioners. Real-life business case studies are solved by the students in collaboration with the mentors. The majority of classes takes place in computer labs with access to platforms such as Bloomberg and Reuters. We encourage students to follow their passion and attend programming languages within their area of interest. To round up the experience, students take part in a trainee program during the last semester – with a strategic partner of their choice. There is no better way to start a career!

BIG DATA REVOLUTIONIZED THE WAY BUSINESSES FUNCTION.
The aim of the Big Data Analysis course is to teach students skills that constitute a practical value at work and, simultaneously, a great asset in students’ CVs. Students are taught how large data sets are handled in accounting, finance and banking. Concepts of relational databases are presented to learn how to work with ‘real’ data whilst practicing SQL programming by solving exercises at various levels of difficulty during each class. I strongly advise students to participate in all classes as we are consistently diving into more advanced concepts. As utilization of analytical software is a must – used by specialized data-driven professionals in finance, we give students the opportunity to become experts, in order to successfully master the future work challenges of a data-driven world.
