My name is Jayati Tiwari and I am a student of the Master in Data Science at Bologna Business School. I come from India, a beautiful country known for its history, culture, food and hospitality. After acquiring almost 3 years of experience as a software developer at a multinational company in India, I decided to broaden my horizons, both personal and professional. I’ve always wanted to study abroad to get a more complete overview of my industry and choosing BBS was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
When I decided to continue my studies, I found that the Master in Data Science proposed by BBS was among all the most suitable for me, as it represented a perfect combination of theoretical and practical knowledge. The fact that this course was taught in English but available in Italy, so far from my home city, added new emotions to the journey I had just undertaken.
The first days of the period spent in BBS were pretty hectic, but I soon realized that all the efforts I was making were worth it. Every day was a new beginning, full of tools offered to learn and explore, whether it be classroom lessons, group activities, workshops, company visits, discovering the city of Bologna or getting to know the people who inevitably started to be part of my life.
The teachers were very helpful and always available, guiding us at every step. After the classroom sessions, I had the opportunity to do an internship at the Engineering Ingegneria Informatica group, a very important company in the Digital Transformation sector, with 10,300 employees and 50 offices distributed in Italy, Germany, Spain, Belgium, Serbia, Brazil, Argentina and the United States. I am extremely happy to have the opportunity to work in an Italian company with such an international scope, and to be part of a group that designs and creates innovative architectures and promotes innovation in organizations.
Surely I will keep forever the memories related to the period spent in BBS. I met people from all over the world, with different backgrounds and cultures, all willing to work together for a common vision. We exchanged our thoughts, our ideas, worked as a team and each time we acquired new knowledge. In a very short period of time we became friends, a team always ready to support each other throughout the process.
The experience of the Master in Data Science at BBS was not limited to making us complete a training course and obtain a qualification. The most important part was the process, the whole journey done together. This Master has contributed not only to my career but also to my personal growth, teaching me an important lesson: “Permeate your life with action. Do not wait for it to happen, make it happen. Build your hope. Build your future. Make it happen yourself, right now.”
