This course is on Data Science (DS) and Process Modelling (PM), and is part of the (dutch) bachelor program Informatica & Economie of Leiden University.

From Spring 2021 onwards, the setup and content of this course will change substantially. The majority of this 7 ECTS course will actually be in the form of the precise contents of the 6 ECTS Data Science course by dr. Suzan Verberne. In addition, lectures (see schedule below) and exam questions about Process Modelling will be provided through this course. The book by van der Aalst used until 2020, is no longer mandatory.
