Academic Prerequisites

The admissions process involves an online application. Applicants whose application files are successful are then required to attend an interview.

To enter this program, prospective students must have a Bachelor degree in Science, Engineering, Business or Economics. A strong background in Mathematics is mandatory as they will deal with data pool and will learn mathematical techniques for extraction and data visualization.

If you wish to apply for the joint degree program Data Science For Business, please note that applications must be submitted via our partner's website, HEC Paris. Read carefully the information on the application process and deadlines on their website.

The admission committee will assess the relevance and quality of the Bachelor's degree. The Graduate Point Average (GPA), the individual grades for the courses, class rank and any academic awards will also be taken into account.
