A multitude of financial studies has stated that data science is a crucial element to any organization looking towards increasing its revenue. While data helps business leaders make fact-based decisions based on historical trends and statistical numbers, data science allows companies to deliver relevant products and tease out actionable insights out of large amounts of data.
There is a need in the financial market for competent and well-trained data scientists. edX understood this gap and worked with UCSanDiego to develop its data science online course. The edX data science course offers relevant and practical applications on using Python tools and the Spark platform.
edX was created to empower anyone to receive the education they want, regardless of where they live. The online platform provides access to high-quality education from more than 160 member universities, including Harvard, MIT, Berkeley, Boston University, and more. While some courses have minimal tuition, other classes are offered for free.
With the new Data Science MicroMasters Program Certificate, graduates gain a competitive advantage over their peers. The program trains students on how to clean real-world data and make reliable statistical inferences from noisy data.
The full program is offered at an introductory rate for a limited time only.
Erez Nir, SVP and CTO of Mitchell International stated, “It is my belief that a candidate credentialed through the edX MicroMasters program in Data Science would have a marked advantage in our company.”
