Anyone here doing MBA Big Data (part time) from Univ. Of Amsterdam


venomdog
I am an IT professional with over 10 years of experience and I wanted to follow Big Data course from Univ. Of Amsterdam. I attended back in 2015 open day for this course and I was not satisfied with the content, to me it look like more of a management course than actual Data science one, also the fees is as good as RSM MBA (part time).
It's been a year but I couldn't find any course on Big Data tat offers part time option.
So, this bring me to question if anyone following this Big Data course and how it is so far, I am again thinking of joining starting this year and it would be great help if someone can shed some light on the overall course and quality of contents, I am interested in practicality of this course. Last time they said modular option is also available but later they denied it. I am wondering if this option started from this year.

Any help will be appreciated.

From what I know this is a very new program, and as far as I know there has only been one graduating class. I'd try to connect with at least some of those graduates to see if the program met their expectations and to see what kind of roles they are working in now.

If you're restricted to doing a part-time program in the Netherlands, you might look at something more general, from an internationally accredited business school. RSM has a fabulous EMBA program that might work.

But if you are really interested in focusing on analytics and aren't tied to the Netherlands but need a part-time degree, you might look at the Smurfit MSc in Analytics program.
