Program Structure

 

 

bachelor program structure

The Bachelor of Arts & Science in “Data, Society & Organisations” is a double program lasting three years and focused on data science applied to the fields of society and organizations. This program of interdisciplinary excellence is designed to respond to the new challenges of our society.

The Bachelor offers students a rigorous path that integrates two complementary areas: the interdisciplinary development of computer science and mathematics skills, as well as an in-depth understanding of the social issues necessary for the analysis and relevance of data. This approach makes it possible to understand the major challenges linked to the collection and use of data in fields such as economics, sociology, law, public affairs and management (environmental transition, health, education, justice, social, etc.) and develop entrepreneurial methods to solve the key societal and organizational challenges.
