Michele Costa

Data Science Program Ambassador

Originally from Italy
Currently living in United Kingdom

I have a background in Economics, having studied in Milan and then London. I have been working two years in the investment management industry in Luxembourg before enrolling for the Data Science master. Following the graduation, I have held the position of data engineer and quantitative analyst in London.


I pursued the Data Science master at BSE in a moment when I needed to step up my level of quantitative analysis and research. It has the peculiarity of a small student cohort, which gives a great boost to the interaction with the faculty and all other classmates. With the current hindsight, I can say that the Data Science master provided me enough plug-in tools to make a direct contribution in the work environment, as well as theoretical framework to look at less trivial problems. I learnt a great deal from my classmates about thinking out of the box and helping the team and friends succeeding.
