‘I didn't want to be a branch manager all my life and started asking myself what’s the next step in my career. The broadly oriented MScBA of TIAS seemed to me the right training to create more opportunities for myself. A good choice, during my thesis I already received an offer for my current position. As a Data Analytics Consultant, I work with people with very different skill sets. The MScBA’s broad business orientation, in-depth management skills and specialization in business analytics help me enormously. I now have a good idea of work processes with data, how to set up projects in this field properly, as well as how to come to better insights in a Data Science Team. Thanks to the skills and knowledge I’ve acquired, I also have a better understanding of where people with various personalities and skill sets are coming from. I can talk with them in their professional jargon, explain my view and choose the matching collaboration processes to come to the best results. In addition, the quality of the professors at TIAS, both in teaching skills and expert knowledge, is excellent, as well as the program’s design. Following lectures about a specific topic every 2 to 3 weeks in a weekend ensures not only a better integration of the subject matter, but is also ideal in combination with a full-time job.’
