The need for specialists able to create and manage large databases, extract information using statistical methods and provide support for decision-making is emphasised by an increasing number of competent voices in the public sphere. Concepts such as Big Data, Data Analyst, Data Scientist, Data Mining are currently among the areas of interest of specialists from universities, research institutes and companies. At a time when computer power is growing exponentially, databases are larger and increasingly complex, which calls for specialists with mixed skills in the area of statistics and informatics, able to work in the new and dynamic conditions of the global market.
