For Kristof Coussement « the event was a great success as it attracted a variety of attendees from alumni, business partners to current participants of the Master in Big Data Analytics for Business. It created ideal network opportunities around inspiring and rich data science presentations. It was an ideal milestone to revibe the analytics community at IÉSEG School of Management.
