Student & Alumni Voices | Digital Transformation & Data Science MBA | WU Executive Academy
Gertraud Wachmann, MBA
I appreciated the excellent mix of lessons of up-to-date and state-of-the-art knowledge, interesting discussions on the topics with very qualified peers from different domains, experiences and management levels and the variety of networking opportunities, organized by WU or privately. This certainly broadened my horizon which I admit had become narrow after many years of working in a rather restricted environment. I attended the program during an educational leave and at the same time I was looking for a career change. I realized that the MBA experience turned out to be a booster for my professional prospects. With the advancing of the program, I gained optimism and self-confidence and finally found the perfect new challenge I think I would not have had the opportunity to take without the MBA degree.
Philip Glasner, MBA
Businesses run on data, and data offers little value without analytics. The MBA in Digital Transformation & Data Science gave me the necessary knowledge for a leading innovative position in data governance and analytics. With this knowledge, I aim to turn the vast amount of business data into insights, predictions, and actions.
Zagorka Bozhinovska, MBA
Little did I know in what I’m enrolling into when I pursued the MBA in Digital Transformation & Data Science program. And that is how it should be. Apart from the academic learning, the biggest takeaway for me personally was working with my peers with various backgrounds.
Analysing situations from different educational and professional background, enhanced my professional expertise. This also provided me with outside of the box approach for my professional challenges and opportunities.
Additionally, the learning approach with case studies allowed me to put myself in shoes of other people responsible for leading and creating strategies for various companies.
Before the course big data seemed to be far away from my daily business in a small sized company. I categorized this topic to be important for big global players – I was wrong. Now not only that I have realized that I need to deal with big data issues, but I also feel competent enough to handle big data projects in my company.
