Discover | Data

Part of our series of sector discovery programmes, Discover | Data is our programme for LSE students who are interested in working in any kind of data role. This might include roles in data analytics, data science, AI, machine learning, automation, and other roles with data at the heart of their day-to-day tasks.

In addition to offering a range of careers support and resources, the programme includes our Discover | Data events series, with events being held throughout the year. These events feature a selection of LSE alumni and employer representatives, giving you the opportunity to network with employers, hear more about the roles available, and identify whether working in data is for you.
