The most important economic and social development of our times is digitalisation. Digital technology not only fills all areas of interpersonal communication but also has an important influence on our economy. It not only represents existing forms of technology but also paves the way for new business models that were not previously possible. Its distinguishing feature is the consistent use of data. Data Science is therefore at the core of all digitalisation processes.

The online Bachelor's degree in Data Science covers data preparation, visualisation, and analysis. You’ll learn to take a methodical, focused, and logical approach to data science problems. The key focus is on practical problem-solving skills.

In order to best prepare you for the international job market, all of our study programmes are offered 100% in English.
