We know the amount of data produced globally daily is 2.5 quintillion bytes, which is enormous and is expected to keep increasing as the world’s population gets more access to the internet. The data is now considered a commodity that is more valuable than oil, and buried in these data are answers to countless questions. Data Science helps to deal with these vast volumes of data using modern tools and techniques to find unseen patterns, derive meaningful information, and make business decisions. When the opportunity in data science comes knocking at your door, will you be ready?
The Master in Data Science program aims to prepare students with a well-rounded education in different areas of Data Science to prepare themselves to become successful data scientists. The curriculum is made up of 4 core modules and 2 specialization modules providing in-depth knowledge in the field of Data science and its industrial application. Students will learn how to work with data to solve complex problems. Topics covered include Python, Data Science Algorithms, Data Analytics in Business & Data Mining. In the master’s program students will also learn two specialization modules in (I) Statistical Data Modelling and (II) Applications of Data in Artificial Intelligence & Block Chain. At the end of course modules, all students are required to undertake a capstone project in Data Science to have hands-on working experience by solving real-world problems.

You can apply by submitting the following documents:
When it comes to an online study program the first question that comes to a student is whether it is a self-study program, but with Exeed College we are looking at more of a guided level learning program with live interactive sessions being conducted which already covers up the main factor involved in availing a full time MBA title. As per European Education Framework, a learner has to achieve 60 ECTS before he/she can be conferred an MBA by any European University. These 60 ECTS which are considered as a full time MBA title under global standards. Through Cambridge International Qualification (CIQ), Exeed has partnered with different Universities in Europe/UK/USA to assist busy working professionals to realize their dream of earning an MBA under a guided level learning program flexible and well-structured online based level platform.
MOFA stands for Ministry of Foreign Affairs. UAE MOFA attestation is mandatory on every document after UAE embassy attestation for getting a valid visa. UCAM MBA title is verified and recognized under MOFA. MOFA attestation is required for all those universities who do not have a physical campus in the UAE.
MOHE stands for Ministry of Higher Education. MOHE approves, accredits and recognizes only those qualifications which are pursued through a physical campus in the country of origin.
However, MOHE attestation is not mandatory for expats residing in the UAE. Therefore, UCAM MBA Degrees are attested and verified by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
-Yes, it is quite possible, as we follow the protocols of Recognized Prior Learning Policy (RPL) under which there are two categories:
*RPCL(Recognized Prior Credential Learning): Where the subjects learnt by the student (transcripts required) based on their previous qualifications (Master’s Degree or Level 6 &7 diploma) are mapped with our course modules post which he/she will be eligible for the Module exemptions.
* RPEL (Recognized Prior Experiential Learning): Where the student documents will be mapped with the prior experiential learning (acquired through work experience), post which he/she will be eligible for some exemptions.
Any university in the world allows maximum exemptions of 1 or 2 modules only as per the policy, exceptional cases would be discussed with the authority concerned, to be taken into the consideration.
NOTE: Course fee and Module Exemptions are two independent factors regardless of the number of modules exempted, the course fee will remain the same. This should be noted by the student prior to raising the module exemption request.
Once the module exemption feedback is received, the Advisor concerned will submit the RPL Letter to the student stating the number of modules exempted along with its credits.
Yes, this will help you in migrating to these countries. Students can get their degree equivalence from ECA (Education Credential Assessment) organizations like WES, ICAS, IQAS, as we hold the World Education Services (WES) accreditation.
Although the sessions are being recorded and archived on the LMS system which can be accessed at any time, the student would be required to achieve at least 70% of attendance, which will be captured during the live interactive platform.
Yes, we do provide services in attaining the attestation of a degree certificate with an additional service fee charge.
Students can get their certificates by attending the Graduation Ceremony at the UCAM University Campus, Spain (charges will be additional) or the Certificate will be directly couriered to the respective addresses provided.
All the courses are internationally accepted, including the UAE, and you will receive MOFA attestation for the same, if you wish. An additional charge will be there for the attestation.
Both Westford University and Exeed College are entities of the Westford Education group. We offer MBA programs through various Universities, but we have one University in common which is UCAM and we give different specializations comparing them.
We have many students from your country who have joined us of which we can assist you in giving references. Plus, we have references of our alumni, who have completed the course and you can talk to them on our website.
It is always better to have an MBA rather than opting for the diploma programs. As a student you will be receiving UK Level 7 Diploma qualification as an added benefit included in the course fee.
6 to 8 months depending on the Deferment reason, if a student exceeds the promised deferment period, the student is bound to pay the registration fees.
PGED is 6 Modules which is 120 UK credits, whereas PG Diploma is 2 modules i.e. 40 UK credits.
Yes, definitely it holds a value as it is an added certificate in your profile. A student will gain instant free membership of 1 year affiliate level.
There will be a further specified timeline given to submit the assignment once the initial deadline is expired. If the student still fails to submit then he/she will get a fine of AED 250.
As the program is purely designed for the working professionals there is no failing system. The student always gets an option of redoing the assignments.
