The program is divided into two semesters: Foundation (semester 1) and Future (semester 2).
Each semester lasts four to five months and is comprised of short and long modules or blocks. You start the Certified Data Science Program in the Foundation semester, as this will give you the knowledge required to participate in the more advanced Future semester. During the Future semester, expecting in spring 2020, we will delve even deeper into the subject matter.
The Future semester is comprised of 3 blocks and known as the “Full Pack”:
Business Analytics II
Big Data Analytics II
If you wish, you can choose only 1 or more blocks of your choice.
Why should you participate in the Certified Data Science program?
Data science is developing at a rapid pace. This development has a major impact on the way in which organizations, both in the public and private sector, structure and execute processes. This impact can also be felt in relations with business partners, in decision-making, and in terms of the competencies and skills that employees at every level of the organization must possess. The Certified Data Science Program is a unique and challenging course, offering a mix of advanced data-science topics that will help you to prepare yourself for this development and be part of it.
(Duration of the course)
The program is offered online and will consist of virtual meetings and independent learning in order to master all the topics that are discussed. The schedule for the virtual meetings can be requested via email: email@example.com.
The program has been designed to help you solve generic business problems and master a specific skill or competence, ensuring a constant relation between theory and practice. We also apply insights to your cases and business challenges and show you how you can use data-science techniques to improve innovation at your company. Alongside the face-to-face meetings, participants will have to set aside time for independent learning in order to master all the topics that are discussed.
The course material includes a course manual for self-study, with presentations, example scripts and assignments.
Technical understanding of programming, database structures, etc.
The full- program is divided into two semesters: “Foundation” (semester 1) and “Future” (semester 2). This is the registration for the Future semester (semester 2), in which we will delve even deeper into the subject matter. If you have not followed the foundation semester of this program we kindly ask you to send us your CV so we can assess whether your technical understanding of programming, database structures, etc. is sufficient to enter the future semester.
