Geschichte der Psychologie
„In our digital age, we are amassing large amounts of data, generated not only by surveys but also as a by-product of everyday life activities such as online shopping, use of social networks, or even remotely controlling a washing machine via a smartphone. Advanced techniques for analyzing these data allow us to gain insights more quickly, uncover previously unknown relationships, and foster innovation. IPSDS attracts professionals working with data collection and data analysis, who choose to enhance their skills through an online learning environment. With this challenging English-taught program, you will be ready to tackle fundamental changes in the ways how survey and big data are generated, integrated, and disseminated. The program prepares you for a wide range of research and practitioner positions where data use is crucial. Tailored to the needs of working professionals, IPSDS offers a modular and multidisciplinary curriculum, a web-based learning environment with small class sizes and courses taught by faculty from world’s top ranked universities, statistical agencies and businesses. All courses are offered as single courses or as part of an EMOS certified Master program. IPSDS is offered jointly through Mannheim Business School (University of Mannheim) and the Joint Program in Survey Methodology – a consortium of the University of Maryland, the University of Michigan, and Westat. We are excited to announce that the International Program in Survey and Data Science is now offered as “Mannheim Master of Applied Data Science & Measurement” at Mannheim Business School. You can join the IPSDS courses not only through the Master’s program, but also as single open courses or as part of our certificates.“
