Richard Knudsen

Data Science Program Ambassador

Originally from Germany
Currently living in

Born and raised in Germany, I studied Economics and worked in consulting and finance before joining BSE. Since then I have spent most of my time developing algorithms for Derbysoft, a leading Travel Tech company, as a Data Scientist. I am currently based in Derbysoft's Barcelona office. .


For me the time at BSE was truly amazing. Besides receiving excellent academic training in Data Science I gained much from working with such talented, motivated and passionate professors and students on a daily basis. I never thought that learning this much in just 9 months was actually possible – experiencing that it motivates me every day now to push myself a little more. Moreover, it was often fun (despite being exhausting), I made some really good friends and fell in love with beautiful Barcelona.
