    The goal of the course is to teach participants practical and hands-on skills to run data science projects. We mainly focus on the practical and ‘hard’ skills like programming, statistics and machine learning, but will pay attention to the necessary soft skills as well.

    • the ability to handle structured and unstructured data.
    • insights into judging the quality of data.
    • the skills to perform data analysis.
    • the skills to report the results in a visual manner.
  • For whom?

    This course is for business professionals who perform data analyses of any form on a daily basis. The content is specifically tailored to people who seek to get more out of their existing data. A technical background or profound affinity is a prerequisite, since you will be learning a programming language and developing competences in advanced statistics.
