"It was quite challenging for me to leave my profession as an aircraft engineer and pursue my goals 3000 km away from my hometown. I always had this vision of combining my technical engineering knowledge with a more generic skill, such as business analytics, to create an appealing skillset within the industry and prepare myself for our more and more data-driven world. Thankfully, CEU was the right place for this and helped me through this transition to becoming an aviation data analyst with a broader view on the industry. The MS Business Analytics program at CEU is a well-designed degree with a combination of soft and hard skills, which offers the opportunity to address real-world industry challenges. Moreover, the department’s international community and business professionals from the industry assist you with following your passion and finding your career path."
