About This Class

"Data Science is the sexiest job of the 21st century - It has exciting work and incredible pay". You have been hearing about this a lot. You try to get more information on this and start querying and browsing. You get so many definitions, requirements, predictions, opinions and recommendations. At the end, you are perplexed. And you ask - "What exactly is this field all about? Is it a good career option for me?"

**** Please note: This is a career advice course, not a technology course.

Data Science has been growing exponentially in the last 5 years. It is also a hybrid field that requires multiple skills and training. We have been training students in Data Science. A number of them committed to training without realizing what it really is. Some were happy, some adjusted their expectations and some regretted committing too soon. We felt that professionals thinking of getting into Data Science needed a primer in what this field is all about. Hence, we came up with this course.

Through this course, you will learn about

  • Data Science goals and concepts
  • Process Flow
  • Roles and Responsibilities
  • Where you will fit in to a Data Science team.
  • Building a transition plan

Getting into the Data Science field involves significant investment of time. Learn about the field in order to make an informed decision.
