Hoang Anh Pham from Vietnam, Master of Data Science

‘Quantitative analysis and modelling have become an essential and important skill. This motivated me to improve my knowledge and skills on the subject, and I chose to study Data Science because I wanted to fulfil a deeper understanding in data, algorithms, coding etc. to combine traditional analytics with a sound knowledge of computer science.’
