The data has become a fundamental input in any economic process. In its raw state - untreated, isolated - the data is a priori worthless. It is from their scientific treatment, processing and analysis that useful and original knowledge is extracted - never before could data be 'read' as it can be done today - thanks to innovations in Big Data and Data Science. New tools (programming languages, machine learning, scientific data methods), new capabilities (Internet in Mobility and the Internet of Things, cloud computing) and new professional skills in the digital field (since today we find ourselves in a scenario of scarcity of profiles) are the ones that have made it possible for business models to be generated until recently were unimaginable and catalogue as unviable.

In this context, the Specialization in Applied Economics and Data Science becomes of singular importance, as it becomes a cutting-edge educational option, which privileges the balance between the theoretical knowledge and the practical experience for economic analysis through strict data management.

The objectives of this program are economists specialized in robust and updated analytical tools, which participate in the creation and dissemination of high-level scientific knowledge, as well as in the understanding and solution of the socioeconomic problems that plague the country.

The program is aimed at:

  • Public officials of different orders and levels of government interested in deepening their knowledge of economic analysis and data science.
  • Professionals and entrepreneurs from all areas of knowledge who share an interest in incorporating economic analysis concepts and tools into their training that enrich their analysis capacity and strategic vision.
  • Graduates of bachelor's degrees in economics and related areas: Social (political science, sociology, history, public policy, international relations); Business (business administration, accounting, finance); Mathematics (Actuary, statistics).
