Since its inception 20 years ago, Business Intelligence (BI) has become a huge industrial domain and a major economic driver, however overlooked by academics. It encompasses many scientific and technological fields including data warehouses, data mining, content analytics, business process management, visual analytics, and requires competences in information systems, web science, decision science, software engineering, and innovation and entrepreneurship.

DMKM - Data Mining & Knowledge Management

Alexey Grigorev
5.0 01/09/2012
Il meglio: As a graduate I applied to the Erasmus Mundus Master's Program in Data Mining and Knowledge Management (DMKM) for the fundamental study of Data Mining and related aspects such as Data Analysis, Machine Learning and Statistical Modeling. Not only it was the curriculum attractive for me, but the general idea of the Erasmus Mundus programme of cultural exchange trough mobility and academic cooperation is also appealing. Upon finishing the program I plan to pursue PhD and combine professional and teaching activities. The qualification obtained through the studies will allow me to easily enroll in any doctoral program, and I am specifically interested in researches conducted by Université Libre de Bruxelles and Poznán University of Technology. Teaching is also important for me, because besides building my career I am enthusiastic about sharing my experience and knowledge with others.

MCM - Master of Science in Computational Mechanics

Soumya Swayamjyoti
5.0 01/09/2012
Il meglio: I've been awarded the SNF grant by the Swiss National Science Foundation to pursue his Doctoral Studies at ETH Zurich, often rated as the best technological university in continental Europe (with 21 Nobel Prize winners in it’s alumni, Albert Einstein being the most prominent of them). I've worked with several respectable researchers who are employed with ETH Zurich, Paul Scherrer Institut, Stanford University and University of Stuttgart during his Doctoral and Master’s research. His research interests are Atomistic and Ab-Initio Simulation and Modeling of Materials.

5.0 01/09/2012
Il meglio: I received a full scholarship to participate in a 2 year, Erasmus Mundus Master of Science in Flood Risk Management. During the course I studied in four universities across Europe specialising in several different areas of flooding such as hydro-science and engineering, hydroinformatics, coastal engineering, spatial planning and the socio-economic risks involved with flood disasters.

SAMHC - Advanced Masters in Structural Analysis of Monuments and Historical Constructions

Anna Serafini
5.0 01/09/2012
Il meglio: When I graduated (one year ago), I felt I still had a lot of things to learn and see, and that if I could find a way to go abroad and continue my studies, it was the right moment to do it. The chance given to me by this master is priceless: I'm living in an incredible city, Barcelona, learning so many new things from very professional teachers and from my classmates coming from all around the world. The topic of the master has always attracted me and finally I feel I am building for myself a solid technical base that I was still lacking as an architect. At the same time, the encounter with people from other countries that have so different ways of life and ideas is opening up my mind and allowing me to see things in a different and new way.

SELECT - Environomical Pathways for Sustainable Energy Systems

Dianne Plummer
5.0 01/09/2011
Il meglio: I am an islander from Jamaica. I am quite interested in sustainability, not only on an environmental point of view but also in terms of the business aspects such economic, social and environmental impacts involved in establishing companies. Aside from this I enjoy the dynamic experience of meeting different people and travelling which SELECT has definitely given me the opportunity to do. For the most part my expectations were met; however, there were some courses which were a bit basic and quite general. Additionally, I would have preferred if there were more courses that we could have done with other students who were studying similar courses instead of having a few of the tailored courses at KTH.
