The three years BSc program is structured around three main pillars:

  1. Management,
  2. Decision Making and
  3. Data Analytics.

During the first two years of the program, the students will study these pillars in parallel, while links between the subjects will be highlighted throughout the course of studies. In the third year, the students will focus on a specialization branch such as “Data Driven Marketing” or “Big Data Analytics in Supply Chain Management”.
