Fill a void in the job market

A 2017 McKinsey Global Institute report cites a continuing shortage of analytics talent, noting that a rising demand for skilled professionals would lead to a shortfall of some 250,000 data scientists worldwide.

This online program supports a rapidly growing interest from organizations who want to better utilize information in operational, tactical and strategic decision-making.
