Data Science for Executives
After evidencing an impressive 650% increase in data science roles between 2012 and 2017, businesses have been assessing the opportunities and challenges surrounding big data. That’s why LSBF’s Data Science for Executives course targets professionals looking to become leaders in the field. Whether you want to develop your own data science department within your business or become more aware of the social implications of big data, this course is ideal for you.
You will begin your time at LSBF by learning about the techniques and tools used to extract value from big data. In order to do this, you will be taught how to identify trends and patterns in data. Big data is evolving to be the most important commercial asset, so for any business, it is imperative to know how to use it and the implications of storing it.
The course will also teach you how to lead a team of data scientists and develop business strategies around data. In addition, Tableau Software provides delegates with a one-year, non-commercial license to use their software, so that delegates learn using a hands-on approach.
