Double the network: benefit from the network of two prestigious schools
The MSc in Data Sciences & Business Analytics benefits from several professional networks which have been established by both ESSEC Business School and CentraleSupélec, independently or conjointly. When you obtain your degree with us, you tap in the network, partners, faculty and general contacts of not one but two top-tier schools both highly respected in their respective fields. You will boost your career before even having graduated.
The ESSEC Digital Business Centre of Excellence, for example, was launched in 2014 and incorporates not training programs but all activities linked to research, education, and work in the digital field. You would have access to wide range of conferences and interactions with professionals from the different sectors. Have a look below (English subtitles available)!
Launch your career with a competitive combination of skills
The benefit of a degree in business analytics and data sciences is its wide application across the business world. You will be able to work in a wide range of spheres from consulting, financial services, the healthcare industry, telecommunications, retail, fast moving consumer goods, or digital and engineering companies.
What is certain, is that there is an ever-growing demand in every industry for data-driven leadership and ‘big data’ is the topic du jour. International companies like Google, Microsoft or Amazon and startups like Snapchat, Waze or Uber are all hiring graduates with this kind of expertise.
Moreover, if you are (or would like to be) an entrepreneur, ESSEC Business School provides you with the opportunity to join our in-house incubator, ESSEC Ventures, which supports you whilst you develop and launch your startup project.
The ecosystem, reputation, and networks of both schools will ensure you have every opportunity on the job market.
