"Drive the future with data!"

Programme presentation:

In today’s world, everything is driven by data. Firms hold more information about their business environments than ever before. Increasingly, these organisations are recognising the role of data in gaining insights and out-thinking competitors.

Across industries and sectors, firms are in dire need of analytics professionals to interpret this data and to drive business transformation and growth.

The MSc Business Analytics is a hands-on programme that prepares students for careers using data-driven and evidencebased decision making. Taught by leading practitioners and world-class faculty, students will learn how to apply the latest academic thinking and analytical and computing tools to help make business decisions.

Programme objectives:

MSc Business Analytics prepares students for positions using data-driven and evidence-based decision making. Taught by experienced professionals and an internationally recognised faculty, students will learn how to apply the latest academic thinking and analytical and computing tools to help make business decisions.

Loans

- Student bank loans

Banks grant loans at a preferential rate of about 1% to students attending Grandes Ecoles, as long as you have a guarantor. We organise a “banking fair” at the beginning of each school year on our campuses, attended by representatives of around a dozen banks who you can meet to arrange a loan.

- Government-backed student loans

The government has set up a student loan guarantee fund in partnership with certain banks (Société Générale, Crédit Mutuel, C.I.C , Banque Populaire and certain Caisses d’épargne). They can offer a maximum loan of €15,000 to all students up to 28 years old, be they French, or citizens of the E.U. or the European Economic Area, regardless of income or parental/third-party guarantees.

The interest rate is set by the bank. The possibility of partially or totally deferring your repayments until you graduate is also at the discretion of the student borrower. Learn more by asking the banks on this programme.
