Certificate of Advanced Study in Data Science

A powerful mix of theory and technique for any business.

Being able to understand and apply data-driven insights can help businesses understand their customer’s needs, solve unique problems in creative ways, and use innovative techniques to improve their operations processes.

Ranked as Glassdoor’s #1 best job three years in a row, data scientists are both critical to the success of any organization and in high demand on the job market.
