This bootcamp is a concentrated program designed to prepare students for the extraordinary demand for corporate problem-solvers. Many refer to this as Data Science, but this course emphasizes the practical problem-solving approach to all complex business problems of any shape and size. We use data, mathematics, and technology in concert to solve incredibly complex business challenges.
