In the Government, as well as in the private and social sectors, decision-making increasingly depends on data analysis, which is why access, exchange and openness of data is essential. Governments face the need to generate adequate capacities in their employees to take advantage of new technologies (Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, etc.) and thus strengthen evidence-based decision-making.

In this context, the Specialty in Public Decision Making and Data Science becomes of particular importance, as it becomes a cutting-edge educational option, which generates a balance between theory and practice in order to find a solution to real problems in our environment and being an intensive training in the process of transformation of the public.

This program aims to train experts in the management of technical and analytical tools related to data science and its implementation in strategic decision-making both in the public and private spheres.

The program is aimed at:

  • Public officials of different orders and levels of government interested in deepening their knowledge for public decision making.
  • Private sector professionals seeking to specialize in data science for strategic decision making.
  • Researchers and professionals in public policy and public administration and management, interested in updating their knowledge in the field of public affairs.
  • Public entrepreneurs interested in creating and transforming the way of doing things.
