HTW Berlin Admission Essay
“Information is the oil of the 21st century, and analytics is the combustion engine”-Peter Sondergaard
I became interested in data science after the first semester of final undergraduate year. We were dealing with social statistics and how data collected is then analysed so that policies erected can be done with enough backing from what the community had to say and lack thereof. Those first six months were thrilling and I’ve never loved going to class more than I did during that period.
The prospect of studying Data science together with project management is really interesting to be because I believe anything that requires problems to be solved can benefit from the knowledge of data science. For a project to be successful, a lot of factors are involved. Analysing data that are associated with the project can lead to a strategic approach to determining goals, achieving them and overcoming any gaps that were otherwise overlooked because of the lack of data. Data science is in essence, the surfacing on hidden insight. Data is being used in a way that will enable companies to make smarter business decisions. This coupled with project management will lead to powerful strategies aimed towards success because efficiency and effectiveness are guaranteed.
