“Since I have already studied at BI on a bachelor level, I knew for sure that BI is the university to be in as a student. It offers you the opportunity to experience both practical and theoretical aspects of the fields that you are interested in. For me, Business Analytics is a unique specialisation which, however, can be applied in different industries.“
