Executive Course: Applied Data Science

If you want to apply data-driven approaches at work, then learning about it is the first step to start. This you can do at the EIT Digital Professional School executive course Applied Data Science, developed by our partner Bright Cape. You will learn how to set up and execute data science projects that enable you to bring your organisation to a higher level.

The phrase “data is the new oil” has been repeated many times by now. This phrase, coined in 2006 by Clive Humby, a British mathematician in 2006, has the meaning in it that data is valuable, but if you leave it unrefined, it cannot be used.

In this all-round and intensive course, you will directly get hands-on with your data brought from your business. You will thus work with actual real-life data instead of data from predefined or irrelevant cases. Due to Corona, the course will be given online. Individual sessions with the trainer will be planned during the training
