Your Data Science Skillset
Gain the skillset that the industry is looking for
A data scientist is the pinnacle rank in an analytics organization. Glassdoor has ranked data scientist first in the 25 Best Jobs for 2016, and good data scientists are scarce and in great demand. As a data scientist, you will be required to understand the business problem, design the analysis, collect and format the required data, apply algorithms or techniques using the correct tools, and finally make recommendations backed by data.
Without the expertise of professionals who turn cutting-edge technology into actionable insights, Big Data is nothing. Today, more and more organizations are opening up their doors to big data and unlocking its power—increasing the value of a data scientist who knows how to tease actionable insights out of gigabytes of data.
After completing the master’s degree, students will be able to:
- Identify the different phases required for the preparation of a good visualization: data collection, processing and representation.
- Design a data collection method that manages to map an activity, task or process into concrete data.
- Use existing techniques and tools for data mining, statistics and information visualization.
- Design and develop interactive, usable and eloquent visualizations.
- Design and develop a system to support decision making, contemplating the complete process: data collection, processing and visualization.
Graduates will have a job position as
- Business Intelligence Manager
- Senior analyst
- BI Consultant
