Prepare yourself for a career in Data Science with our intensive, fulltime training.
What does the program cost?
Most or your training costs will be covered by your future employer. To participate in the Data Analytics program presented by the BSSA we charge every student tuition fee of €950,- (excl. VAT).
The BSSA is a partnership between B. Building Business and Experis, in which Experis is pre-financing your course. During the program you will be provided with knowledge and tools to make you feel more secure during application processes and to enlarge your professional network. Once you have been hired you determine how you will pay the remaining costs of your education.
There are several ways in which this could take place:
Option 1: Training costs will be covered by Experis (or partner labels) after being accepted for a position at one of these organizations.
Option 2: When you get hired by a company outside of the network of Experis, the education costs should be covered by this company.
At BSSA we aim to bridge the gap between educational institutions and the industry. We are aiming to fulfill this mission by making programs that teach young talented and motivated people technical skills demanded by the industry accessible for a wider public. Therefore, we ask the industry for an investment in our talent. Regarding this investment, we always take the company size and growth stage into consideration.
Our program consists of a full-time intensive course of three months followed by a full-time position of six months to put the skills you have learned into practice and continue learning while working. We value this construction a lot since we think that this contributes the most to your growth. If you decide not to participate in the whole 9-month program, the cost of the course will be at your expense.
