In the summer of 2007, Yandex announced the opening of their two-year Master's-level program to train students on how to apply data processing and analysis to the Internet and Internet search algorithms. Courses are offered in a variety of subjects such as automated indexing and information search technologies as well as complex methods of data processing (aggregation, automated classification, facts extraction, decision-making theory, etc.) and the application of cutting-edge scientific models and methods.
Classes are led by Dr. Ilya Muchnik, Ph.D., a world class scientist and professor of computer science at Rutgers University, and a Moscow-based academic staff as well as leading international experts.
The goal of this academic program is to give students a top-notch, practical education where they can develop the talents and knowledge that can immediately be applied upon entering the workforce.
