Data Science for Business Innovation

Get the skills you need to lead data-driven business decisions

Although data is the lifeblood of the digital economy, many companies are blind to the value of the data they create. It’s time for that to change!
From a deep dive into the latest techniques to an opportunity to get hands-on with real-world data projects, the Data Science for Business Innovation course equips professionals with the skills they need to succeed in a data-driven world.

What you will gain

Developed in partnership with Politecnico di Milano, a leading scientific-technological university, the course starts by laying a foundation in data science, including big data, machine learning, data valorisation, and communication.

During the course, you will also learn about the value that data science can bring to an organisation, and how business leaders can use data to become better problem solvers. Building on this foundation, the curriculum then turns to the technical nuances of data science, covering such topics as:

  • Supervised, unsupervised, and semi-supervised methods
  • Classification, clustering, and regression techniques
  • NoSQL data models and technologies
  • Scalable cloud-based computation platforms
  • Map-reduce and analogous platforms
  • Hadoop and Spark

Through a mix of one-on-one training, hands-on activities, success stories, and group learning, you will set up and execute your own data science project, and use the newly learned knowledge and skills to solve real-world cases.

Your transformation

With the knowledge and experience gained during this course, you will be well-positioned to leverage data analysis to redefine your organisation’s approach to problem solving. 

You will also have the confidence to ask the right questions, identify the most pressing problems, and implement data-based solutions. Most importantly, thanks to your ability to make informed decisions, you will be able to lead your company’s transformation into an innovative, data-driven business.
