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 CPP Data Science (Python) 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.

It is an advanced training for anyone looking to seriously improve their technical data science skills and capabilities. A group of highly specialised experts will go in-depth with you, delving into the world of data. Combining theory and practice in case studies and actual challenges of your own.
