Master Executive Big Data Science

UIC – Universitat Internacional de Catalunya

Summary

The UIC Barcelona Executive Master’s Degree in Big Data Science is the programme for you if you are a professional who would like to develop further in the fields of Big Data and Advanced Analytics. We will teach you to take decisions in business environments that involve a high volume of data generated at great speed, in which the extraction of knowledge is key. Based on advanced analytical techniques (predictive and prescriptive), visualisation and the design of suitable environments and architecture, we will provide you with the knowledge to tackle Big Data projects.

Description

The Universitat Internacional de Catalunya officially began its academic activities in October 1997. Organic Law 11/1983 on University Reform, (LRU) along with the 26/1984 Parliament of Catalonia Law, established the appropriate legal framework for the establishment of a university with the capacity to award official degree certificates. The Fundación Familiar Catalana (Catalan Family Foundation) took on full responsibility for carrying out this academic project.

This law meant that UIC Barcelona – which initially opened with five faculties and ten degree courses was now officially recognised. A total of about 400 students participated in the opening ceremony for the new buildings on the campuses in Barcelona and Sant Cugat del Vallès.

UIC Barcelona began the 1997-1998 academic year by offering diplomas in Nursing and degree courses in Law, Management and Public Administration, Architecture, Humanities and Journalism, Dentistry and Business Management and Administration. Within a year the diploma in Physiotherapy had been added, and in the year 2000 the diploma programmes in Primary School Teacher Education and Pre-School Teacher Education began.

The degree course in Employment Studies was included in 2002, as was the degree course in Criminology two years later. In that same year the diploma in IT Systems and Management Engineering was officially recognised, helping to broaden the technical side of the university. Finally, in 2004-5 classes in Audiovisual Communication began.

Alongside the expansion of the various faculties, over the years the UIC also experienced a significant increase in the number of centres and institutes. Among these, the Institute of Advanced Family Studies (IESF) was founded in 2004 with the encouragement and support of the Joaquim Molins Figueras Foundation. It would eventually become the most important Spanish institute -with university status- in the field of family policy.

In a similar vein, the Centre for Advanced Social Studies (CESA) was created in 2004 with the aim of coordinating three degree courses with a shared teaching programme. It primarily aims to target working professionals from the civil service or the armed forces. The degree courses offered are Public Administration and Management, Employment Studies and Criminology.

As of the 2008-2009 academic year, the University made all study programmes compliant with the regulations established by the European Higher Education Area (EHEA), effectively imparting all bachelor and diploma courses as formal degree programmes, and gradually phasing out prior courses of study.

UIC Barcelona is also pleased to have introduced new programmes, such as the Degree in Medicine (2008), the Degree in Humanities and Cultural Studies (2009), the Degree in Publicity and Public Relations (2009), and the Degree in Political Science and Public Administration (2010), offered in collaboration with the Centre for Advanced Social Studies (CESA).

Challenge Submission

Although your prime goal may be to source “innovative” solutions in form of reports, analysis, prototypes and MVPs, undoubtedly you will get in contact with a very diverse group of student and faculty talents from all over the world.

Instantly, you will become and serve as a partner in promoting solutions by offering invaluable rapid feedback to students that collaborate with you as problem solvers based on your real-world experience and deep expertise.

To be more specific, as a digital challenge sponsor you bring context, real insights and data of a particular area to the table. You clarify, frame, and pitch your challenges prior to exploring solutions with your student teams.

Your collaboration efforts, will help student teams become thought after problem solvers with applied skill sets that will lead to better solutions overall.

As a challenge sponsor you gain access to the platform and respective call for challenges by subscribing to TELANTO´s Academic Business Network.

Suggestions

Interested challenge sponsors should be:

  • Subject matter experts in the field they are applying for, assuring a smooth collaboration with the responsible faculty and student teams.
  • Committed to a collaboration over a period of 12 weeks.
  • Available to spend approx. 10h in total to collaborate with the student teams.

Next Steps

Challenge applicants will be presented to the responsible faculty member for challenge review and pre-selection. If your proposal fits the course syllabus you will be invited to discuss your challenge during a 30 minutes scoping conversation with the professor.

Frequently Asked Questions

What about confidentiality?

Your information around challenges, collaboration and outputs is kept strictly confidential. While we use your company information and most likely logo and/or trademarks to present you to the academic partners, no third-party, which is not directly involved in the collaboration will never be granted access to sensitive information. As part of the Terms of use, all students agree to the confidentiality clause, when they log in to the network for the first time. Some of our clients choose to address confidentiality in a separate document.

I need to have certainty about any Intellectual and Industrial Rights originating from a collaboration!

The standard Terms & Conditions as well as the Terms of Use foresee, that students cede their IP-rights in favour of the company, when the company contributes to the resolution of the challenges, in terms of providing non-publicly available information, research, analysis, etc. and contribute otherwise with internal resources. A full reading of the Terms & Conditions is made available here: https://telanto.com/telanto-terms-conditions/.

How does the engagement model and collaboration work?

Our role-based platform structures and standardises the process in a simple and intuitive manner with a number of key interaction points, such as the kick-off, mid-term touch points and final presentation. The figure below illustrates the process with the three key roles, being the Challenge Sponsor (CS), Professor and the Student.

Is there any academic supervision of the students working on my challenges?

All collaborations promoted on the Academic Business Network are part of curricular or academically supervised extracurricular activities. For the greater part of the collaborations the challenges are worked on as part of the academic program of a specific course in a bachelor, master or MBA degree, so students performance is in direct correlation to the achievement of course credits and grades.

What is the typical collaboration period with teams of students?

Average collaboration periods take 75 days from kick-off to final presentation. New intense formats with shorter periods are currently experimented with to understand the quality and validity of potential solution outputs.

How much of my time is required to make a collaboration successful?

Half an hour every five to ten days are the standard reports we get from our customers in the higher satisfaction percentiles. Most of the time is required in the preparation, alignment and initial collaboration phase of the challenges.

Do I need to be at the university at some point in time during the engagement?

Half an hour every five to ten days are the standard reports we get from our customers in the higher satisfaction percentiles. Most of the time is required in the preparation, alignment and initial collaboration phase of the challenges.

What is the unique value proposition of TELANTO compared to its competitors?

TELANTO is the sole service provider of a truly global network of universities and companies for university-industry collaboration. With its proprietary technology TELANTO provides novel processes for academia to manage industry relations and collaborations with ease and equally does so for companies with a need for more innovation and problem solving power in search for new ways to detect smart talents.

My company has already University Alliances, do I need TELANTO?

Traditional university alliances are focussed on research and/or short term hiring activities. While those have their certain rationale, TELANTO creates an unprecedented transparency for collaboration possibilities in a broad range of areas, degrees and geographies at any given time. Professionals, managers and leaders within organisations get the possibility to tap into teams of students around the world to start tackle their challenges within much shorter timeframes and practically without bureaucratic effort, than with traditional models.

What type of outcomes can I expect from students?

Most frequent outcomes of collaborations are:

  • Concepts, Analysis and qualitative research
  • Experimental results and scenario projections
  • Prototypes, clickable mockups, MVPs

All in the context of a given challenge, field of study and respective degree as well as experience of the students.

As part of every Call for Challenges from professors, you will be able to consult past and/or expected outcomes for the challenge sponsor to understand the fit of the collaboration opportunity to your challenges at hand.
