Student reviews

This is what our students say

  • With the IU Master, I was able to acquire valuable strategic-global leadership skills that are very much in demand in today's jobs.

    Doreen Richter

    Graduate

  • I decided to study online because I wanted to develop professionally and at the same time have enough time for family and job.

    Veronika

    Online student

  • I find data science is an interesting area of science where lots of things have not yet been discovered and development moves fast. That's also why I chose to join the M.Sc. Artificial Intelligence programme which I am currently studying at IU. The programme, tutors, and professors at IU are really accessible. I'm convinced this programme will keep my knowledge current or even create a new trajectory for my career.
