“The Fellowship was a fantastic opportunity for easyJet to experiment with data science in a low risk manner. We hired the fellows that were working with us, and they have been the foundation of the data science team at easyJet. This is a unique programme that has greatly benefited easyJet!”

Head of Data Science, easyJet

“I’ve highly recommended the Fellowship to others. It’s a great way to find very bright Data Scientists and complete well defined Data Science projects.”

Head of Data Strategy and Advanced Analytics,
MoneySuperMarket

“The Fellowship has been really fascinating; it’s shown that we have a real lack of appreciation of the breadth of machine learning capabilities. Now, we need to get education and the strategy in place to adopt AI moving forward..”

Head of Business IT,
Construction company

“In both cases we hosted a fellow, it has been a very positive experience for us and a great collaboration with Faculty overall.”

Head of Business Operations,
Pharmaceutical company

“It’s been a big success, the fellow has settled in well and the project has opened new avenues at our company. I’m happy to say that the fellow will be continuing to work with us as a full-time member of the team!”
