The CBA programme organizes a practitioner talk series where experts from the industries and academia share their knowledge on different topics related to data and business and how various industries they come from are being affected by data science.
The talk series serves as a communication tool with the goal to help young growing minds at Frankfurt School understand better the world of data science and its enormous application in many business environments. It is also a learning platform benefiting anyone interested in this field, but first and foremost helping our student groups to sharpen the focus on specific future jobs they will pursue and help them centre their attention on the specific passion that will lead them throughout their programme journey. Furthermore, as we grow our practitioner talk series, it will become a place of local and international data and computational science ecosystem able to provide networking and scientific exchanges for both businesses and individuals.

Our audience next to CBA Bachelor students includes Master students of Data Science programmes, FS Data Science initiative, faculty members of different departments and experts from the outside interested in our talks and speakers.

We are happy to welcome companies and professional individuals coming from the industries or academia to share their stories with us.
