The European DatSci & AI Awards also takes great pride in “Paying it Forward” to the next generation of Data Scientist Talent each year, proceeds of ticket sales fund a Scholarship for full time fees for a Level 9 MSc in Business Analytics at UCD Smurfit School, which was recently ranked as 13th in the world in the QS World University Rankings.

The 2018 recipient was Eoin Cotter, a recent graduate of the BComm in UCD Quinn School. Eoin explained his wish to participate in the MSc, “The skillset I will develop will allow me to take advantage of the immense opportunities that the information explosion has created and will continue to create in the future. I am particularly impressed by the programme’s commitment to delivering an end-to-end view of analytics”.

This Scholarship supports the increasing importance of data science and this growing global sector, by offering a full scholarship to cover full-time EU Fees. The 2019/2020 Scholarship will be open for applications from 27th March 2019 until 28th June 2019. Details can be found here on the UCD Smurfit website.

“The Next Generation scholarship gives an opportunity for us to enable a student with high academic and leadership potential to embark on a truly life-changing career path. The UCD Smurfit MSc in Business Analytics is now ranked 13th in the world and offers graduates exceptional career prospects. The greatest satisfaction that I get from being involved in this programme is when, usually around halfway through their year of study, our students start to land job offers that exceed their expectations, and this creates great excitement and momentum within the class. Among that class is one student who would not be there without the financial support of the scholarship – and better still, their attractiveness to employers is underpinned by the achievement of winning the scholarship.”
