    Karina Colombo, Class of 2018

    Testimonial from Karina Colombo, Class of 2018, student at Barcelona Graduate School of Economics

    "Studying at the Barcelona GSE has been one of the most rewarding academic experiences I've had. It is a very intense master with top quality professors, encouraging you to give your best throughout the program. It has a unique combination between policy oriented theory and extremely applied work, specially in quantitative courses."

    Richard Knudsen, Class of 2018

    Testimonial from Richard Knudsen, Class of 2018, student at Barcelona Graduate School of Economics

    "To me, the Barcelona GSE Master's in Data Science clearly holds its promise of being one of the world's finest programs for Data Science in a Social Science environment. Backed by world-class research, the lectures are academically rigorous and demanding, but also carefully contrasted with hands-on practices delivered by experts from the industry."
