Program Goals
The program focuses on computational and quantitative techniques. It aims at offering students new opportunities for building a sustainable competitive advantage through data analysis.

Students are expected to acquire knowledge and skills on:
  • storing, analysing and presenting data, by using current algorithmic and computational techniques
  • using probability theory, statistics and algebra to understand simple and advanced mathematical concepts and tools, applied to data
  • combining specific algorithmic, algebraic and statistical problem-solving techniques, developed over the last 10 years in the field of Data Science, for big data handling and prediction and decision-making modelling
  • summarising and presenting complex data and models efficiently and skilfully
  • detecting situation similarities that can be used to tackle problems solvable by computational techniques

The program is internationally-oriented to meet the current demand for Data Science specialists. Our long-term goal is to establish this program among the leading ones in the field.

MSc in Data Science is ranked 13th globally in the Eduniversal rankings


The Master of Science in Data Science has a large and growing number of Industry Partners, offering industrial thesis topics, career days, seminars and short courses, and scholarships, among other forms of collaboration. We are grateful to the Greek industrial community for supporting the program.
