Data is the lifeblood of every company and professional data management is the driver of business success. Data experts are responsible for data mining and quantitative analyses, data storytelling and communication. They ensure optimal data visualisation for management. Smart data management is the pipeline and fuel of modern applications. Your Master’s programme in Data Management will take a technological and scientific approach and will prepare you for specific tasks in the environment of data-intensive projects. It is not limited to any sub-discipline or technology. Everything is possible. 

During your Data Management studies, you will learn everything about modern technologies, concepts and frameworks with which you can process data efficiently and securely. This includes all the necessary skills to develop and implement powerful, reliable and secure back-end systems for modern, data-intensive applications. For this, you will follow the logical stages of a data processing chain ‒ from data input to data processing, data storage to data analysis and reporting. Some of the main aspects of your studies will include the Python programming language, data security and data analysis in the cloud. You will learn to approach data protection issues not only from a technical perspective, but also against the backdrop of ethical and social responsibility. Furthermore, you will be able to specialise in many areas, including Master Data Management, Data Mining, Business Analysis or Company Process Management. After you have successfully graduated from the Data Management programme, you will be able to implement specific tasks in a data-driven project.  

Information on accreditation and state approval can be found on the sub-page of the degree program.
