Data has been called the new global currency, and its meteoric rise is transforming entire industries—and driving the demand for practitioners who can wield its power. From health care and finance to entertainment, cybersecurity and beyond, the need for data scientists continues to grow in tandem opportunities for career advancement within the field.
To help fill this talent gap and further the use of data science to solve real-world problems, Columbia Engineering Executive Education has partnered with Emeritus to create the Applied Data Science course.
Since this course requires an intermediate knowledge of Python, you will spend the first part of this course learning Python for Data Analytics taught by Emeritus. This will provide you with the programming knowledge required to do the assignments and application projects that are part of the Applied Data Science course.
