Viv Ek
Hello guys,

I am working as Data Analyst at a startup and have over 7 years of experience. Now I want to take my Data knowledge to next level and highly interested to join MSc in Big Data/Data Science program in Europe (France) for September 2019 intake. I am quite confident I will get an offer from ESCP Europe(Paris) and IESEG School of Management(Lille). Please advice me which is the best option to choose from.

Both of these will increase your knowledge. The IESEG course seems to be 90 ECTS but I cannot be sure about the ESCP course: I know some of their masters are just 60. IESEG requires a degree with some quant or IT skill along with a specific English level, while ESCP does not. The IESEG course seems very focused on marketing, finance and operations, so that seems like a good choice if one of those is your goals.

Of course, the normal cautions apply to those who want to work in France without already fluent in French.

Thanks for your reply Duncan

ESCP course is 90ECTS. Like you said programming and quantitative element is more in IESEG when compared to ESCP. Both Masters is focused on marketing, Finance and operations. Its just ESCP brand name is more tempting to me. My intention is to work after education ( not limited to France, anywhere in Europe), so I am leaning more towards ESCP. I am not sure if this is the right way of approach in selecting a degree.

Duncan, I will also get an offer from Tilburg University for their MSc in Data Science: Business and Governance in Netherlands. How about local language situation there ? do I have to study their language (Dutch) like France or Germany ?. I have friends over there, I am told 80 to 90% speaks good english and there is no pressing need to learn Dutch. I have also seen guys getting job offers with English (my friend being one of them).

I am applying for September 2019 intake so i have almost 1 year to study either Dutch (or) French. Kindly advice me.

On Tilburg. Things change all the time, and I am focussed on the post experience MBA, but I think that you certaintly don't need Dutch to live and study there. But what work opportunities are there in any country, at the managerial level, for people who cannot speak to clients or staff? A year in the country will give you time to study in Dutch, and that will be best for finding work.

Viv Ek,

There is a great program in France by École polytechnique and HEC Paris called "MSc Data Science for Business X - HEC"
Those are two very very good names in France, maybe worth checking out. I graduated from l'x so I am a bit biased though :)
