Orientation Days: Double degree ENSAI-ESE

Are you still wondering what Master you want to do? On the 5th of March, Professor Lionel Truquet of the National School for Statistics and Data Analysis in France (ENSAI), will visit Erasmus University Rotterdam to tell you more about a double degree possibility at ENSAI.

ENSAI is one of France’s prestigious Grandes écoles d’ingénieurs, with high-level expertise in Data Science and Statistical Engineering. With close ties to the French National Institute of Statistics and Economic Studies (INSEE), various research teams, and private sector partners, ENSAI trains its students to become specialized Data Scientists capable of complex information processing and analysis.

ENSAI and Erasmus School of Economics have signed a double-degree agreement allowing students from ESE's MSc in Econometrics and Operations Research to earn ENSAI's MSc in Statistics for Smart Data. Taught entirely in English, this program is unique. Many Master’s degrees have recently emerged in the field of Data Science, most of which are highly IT-oriented. As the most specialized graduate school in Statistics in France, ENSAI has naturally chosen a different path. Students learn not only the latest in computer science technology, they also acquire the tools necessary to interpret the mass of available data and to master algorithms and statistical skills that are essential to identifying relevant and valuable information. Graduates go on to work in a wide array of sectors including business analytics, social network analysis, and risk management.

Thanks to the agreement between ENSAI and ESE, ESE students pay 50% less than outside students, for a total cost of €4000 for this 1-year program. Application fees are also waived.
