Event description

Description

The Data incubator's Data Science for Business Leaders course is a one-day, in-person workshop geared towards giving working professionals the skills needed to bridge technical and business teams within an enterprise. Developed with feedback from our hundreds of industry partners and based on the same rigorous methodology as our Fellowship, our course gives students the skills needed to become successful "data translators" who can communicate effectively with both technical and non-technical stakeholders.

This course covers topics in big data, data science, analytics, and AI that every data translator should know. We discuss foundational concepts, tools, and applications of data science and machine learning through a series of lectures and case studies.

Classes will be held from 9 AM - 5PM ET on Tuesday, August 14.

The deadline to register is 11:59 PM ET on 7/20/18.
