Our Master program is oriented towards the training of people interested in working in data analytics, and in particular of analytics involving the evaluation of very large volumes of data in companies and organizations. Master’s students, either recently graduated or professionals, will receive both additional formation in the basic foundations of the analytics methods used for Big Data, and familiarity with their potential applications in different areas of interest.

Particular emphasis will be placed on the use of applications based on analytic languages such as R and Python. The courses will also introduce data storage and processing paradigms such as MapReduce or noSQL, and their implementations (Hadoop, Storm, Spark, etc…), as well as cloud storing and computing methodologies. This knowledge will prepare them to handle large data sets and to conduct complex statistical and computational analysis of these data, to obtain results in pattern identification, prediction, forecasting, simulation or optimization, relevant for the improvement of the efficiency in the activities of companies and organizations.

As an illustration of this potential demand, the French government expects that the needs for professionals with these qualifications during the coming five years on the whole of the EU will be in excess of 300,000 persons. In Spain, the use of these techniques is expected to increase by at least 300% in the next three years.
