GRIGORII POMAZKIN, RUSSIAN, EDHEC-2020

MSC IN DATA ANALYTICS AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE, DATA SCIENTIST, PARTICLE.ONE, MOSCOW

"I had prior experience as a business analyst in the financial sector. Having a keen interest in mathematics, I decided to upgrade from business analyst to data scientist. The MSc in Data Analytics and Artificial Intelligence helped me to achieve that goal. Firstly, the courses on statistics and machine learning helped me to build a solid understanding of the key concepts behind sophisticated algorithms. In addition to a solid theoretical base, I gained hands-on experience of programming. By the end of my studies, I had mastered R and Python from scratch. I had no problem finding a job. In fact, I received 2-3 calls a day from headhunters. I decided to join a US-based start-up as a data scientist to develop AI that predicts financial-market behaviour."
