Who are we? Why do we exist?

The Analytics Club counts about 400 members, all sharing their passion about Machine Learning! Our goal is to allow students to expand their knowledge and apply their skills, while helping bridge the gap between the academic world and industry. All members can benefit from more exposure to concrete use-cases of analytics skills, learn about potential future opportunities and much more. Most importantly, we pride ourseleves in hosting fun and engaging events, where like-minded people are free to join.

This student society is run by our 8 board members below and many more helpers that join us in various committees. We are all students studying in areas related to data science and are engaged in shaping the community in the greater Zurich area. If you are interested in joining forces, feel free to reach out to us directly at internal@analytics-club.org!
