Anyone beginning to make their first steps in data science today, has to decide between finding their way independently through online learning (books+MOOCs) or undertaking an academic advanced degree program. While online specializations are getting better and more diverse, still only handful of people manage to launch a new career using online courses alone. On the other hand, not many people can put their life on hold in order to return to academia for several years pursuing a degree.
This is why YSDA designed this unique 2-semester program that combines offline and online learning, as well as practical experience. The program includes work on real-world projects offered by industry partners and additional capstone projects within individual courses.
It won’t be easy, but in a less than a year you’ll be ready to build data-intensive apps and successfully manipulate and utilize large volumes of data.
