This week the last session of the seminar ‘Business Model Evolution’ took place. It was very well received by our students.
“Personally, I really liked the course and the way it was presented. I learned a lot of things… this will impact my career as a future entrepreneur”, Alice, a student at BIT.
“The module was certainly one of the most interesting courses that I have followed so far. Professor Sven-Olaf Gerdt, and his tutor Christopher Sieker were open to our questions …and always came up with appropriate answers”, Giovanni, a student at BIT.

One of our highlights this semester will be the course “Learning from Data: R programming” by Professor Kostis Christodoulou from the London Business School. During his career, he has achieved outstanding results both in academics and the private sector and it’s a huge honor for us to have him at BIT for this course.

Since this week, our 6th-semester Computer Science students develop new Data Science skills in the course “Learning from Data: R programming”. With the help of Professor Kostis Christodoulou, the students will learn how to understand and analyze data with different statistical methods in R. The course focus specifically on data relevant for the future economic and societal development in Africa preparing the students for their career after BIT.
