Places where you'll find Emergent Alumni
Find out what our current members have to say about their experience at Emergent...
"My two years at Emergent were the most rewarding of my entire student life. I worked with a wonderful group of people to build the organisation into the homebase for the aspiring Data Scientist. The experience taught me skills I still use on a daily basis, and most of all, it helped me figure out what I like doing in my career and in life. If you can't wait to start building something, join Emergent!"
Former Emergent President
"There are a lot of reasons why you should join Emergent, but for me it was mostly to experience working in a bigger organisation while still in a tolerant environment. Emergent offers its members a playing ground with lots of opportunities to learn about data science, organizing events, networking with companies, leading an organization and so on. According to me the perfect first step before starting your actual career."
Partner Relations Director
"Without a doubt, joining Emergent was one of the smartest moves I made while in Belgium. Working with this organization has been a truly amazing experience, as I've had the opportunity to contribute to its growth and watch its reputation soar higher than I ever expected. Emergent is a place where you can develop essential skills that you wouldn't necessarily learn in a classroom. And, of course, the best part of being part of Emergent is the opportunity to collaborate with like-minded students and create unforgettable memories together. Trust me, Emergent is the place to be!"
