Increased Demand in Professional Skills Explains Application Increase

Dalarna University's programme in Business Intelligence and Data Science continues to grow in interest when it comes to applications. One explanation for this is that those students who successfully complete the programme find employment.

"This programme alows students to acquire exactly the right kind of competence that is in demand right now, and this is a result of conscious efforts by the University to improve  programme content," explains Michael Oppenheimer, Director of International Studnet Recruitment.

Applications to the Master's Programme that starts in spring 2020 have increased by 62 percent compared witih last year, which is higher than the national average when it comes to master's programmes in general. The figure there is 34 percent.

Statistics from the Swedish Council for Higher Education (UHR) show a positive trend when it comes to international courses and programmes at the undergraduate level: applications here have increased by 5 percent compared with the same time last year.
