You'll get a solid grounding in the critical and creative thinking and design processes of a data scientist
You'll be able to use a suite of data science technologies & practices whatever your technical skills; yet be aware of when tools can distort your findings

Professionals with diverse backgrounds including analysts, researchers, econometricans, developers, engineers, architects and more
Managers investing in building an awesome data team and data strategy
Personalisation sets us apart
