All our programmes follow a flexible and experiential learning model. The programmes are part-time and online only. This means that you can join from wherever you are in the world, and study and work at the same time. For the M.Sc. in Data Science, students are invited to come to Amsterdam for a shortstay of around 10 days.
Absolutely! Our programmes are perfectly designed for working professionals. Our part-time, blended model ensures you can join from anywhere in the world and can schedule your study time around your work hours. For more information, check out our Experience page.
For the Master in Data Science, students are expected to come to Amsterdam for a short visit of around 10 days. During this visit, you will complete your leadership practicum and interested students can join the Talent Meetup to connect with recruiters in the Dutch market.

We do not require internships for the completion of the programme, but students do have to complete a Final Project before graduating. The programmes follow a 2 + 1 model: You receive two certifications and a Degree Diploma (B.Sc. or M.Sc.). After the two certificates, you are expected to apply your learning in a Final Project.
European Leadership University supports placement opportunities through its Talent Accelerator. The Accelerator gives nominated learners the chance to work with a career coach, join meet-ups in Amsterdam, and connect in other ways with selected organizations and companies in the Netherlands. European Leadership University does not guarantee the placement of its learners.
No, you don’t! While an IT background helps during your studies, it is not a requirement. We believe that anyone with the right motivation and discipline is able to learn a new skill and transition to a new field.
We assume an intermediate level of Python knowledge for our M.Sc. in Data Science. If you do not know Python, please reach out to us at [email protected] so we can recommend online Python courses before the start of your programme.
Of course! The blended nature of our programme makes it very accessible to people around the world. Our cohorts are very diverse with talent from across the world.
