"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 general 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. The MS Business Analytics is a well-designed degree with a combination of soft and hard skills, which offers the opportunity to address real-world industry challenges.
