Our 10-day Master of Data Science training is for anyone who wants to bring Data Science into daily practice and provide a boost to their career. Not for nothing, Data Scientist was named as “The Sexiest Job of the 21st century!” There’s a major shortage of good Data Scientists.
Statistics, data blending, and data visualization are among the core competencies, but good communication skills, organizing governance, KPIs, data quality, and consultancy skills are equally important.
Besides technology there’s also the business side
Naturally, all the technical aspects are covered in our Master of Data Science training and there is also some work on the bits and bytes, but we especially emphasize the business side:
- How do you put Data Science on the map in your organization? What business case can you make?
- How do you ensure that it’s embedded in the right Business Intelligence processes and frameworks?
- What tools can you use, and what best suits your specific problem?
- Which methods and algorithms for pattern recognition can be used?
- How do you implement a successful Big Data solution and what does it involve?
- What is the relationship between innovation and Data Science?
- How do you deal with internal politics, support and acceptance among users?
This complete academic training is a must for anyone who wants to qualify in Data Science.
Taking the right steps in Data Science
In 10 intensive days, you will be immersed in the field and readied for a leadership position in your organization. Former participants of this training proved to be excellently equipped to take the right steps in their Data Science trajectory.
The training for complex data challenges
The “data-driven society” is closer than you think, and several national and international think tanks all agree that the proper use of data can make the difference between prosperity and decline. Our Master of Data Science training is intended for organizations that deal with complex data challenges and that want to be substantially smarter.
The organization’s intelligence cannot be captured in mere data analytics, it goes much further than that. In our practical model, you’ll learn where and how Data Science and the intelligent organization affect each other and why an analytical business culture is of great importance for the success of Data Science.
10-day program of the ‘Master of Data Science’ training
During this Master of Data Science training, you’ll come into contact with all aspects of Data Science, and you’ll learn how to convert data issues into results for the organization. In addition to the technical aspects (such as IoT, data mining, genetic algorithms, Hadoop, etc.) you will become acquainted with all relevant business aspects such as project management, business cases, KPIs, governance, data quality, privacy issues, and ethics.
The program consists of a dinner, three training courses that fit well together and have been proven in practice, and a final assignment:
DATA SCIENCE DINNER: Introduction of the training
The dinner on the evening prior to the start of training prepares you for the overall training process. Daan van Beek, Managing Director of Passionned Group and author of the management book “The Intelligent Organization” will be your host that evening.
He will give you an overview of what you can expect from this training and, between courses, there is sufficient space for interaction, stories, and discussion about Data Science and the social / economic significance.
PART 1: Business Intelligence & the Intelligent Organization
Part 2: Data warehousing, master data management & Big Data
Part 3: Big Data & Predictive Analytics
In the last part of the course you’ll learn all about Big Data & Predictive Analytics, implementing advanced data analytics, predictive modeling, data mining, open data, Big Data Quality, and everything that comes with it for a successful implementation. Read more…
DATA SCIENCE ASSIGNMENT: final assignment and certification
During the training you work on a challenging assignment that tests whether you can put what you’ve learned into practice. You should submit the assignment a week before the last day. It will be discussed in full on this day. The winner will receive a year’s free access to our knowledge base and the development will be published on our website.
If desired, you can also follow the three parts of this training separately.
Training schedule 2017
- Spring: March 16, 17 and 18, April 8, 15 and 22, May 13, 20, and 27, June 10
- Autumn: October 5, 6, 7, and 12, November 4, 11, 18 and 25, December 9 and 16
There is room for up to 12 participants, therefore make sure you book early to secure your placement.
Striving for data perfection: user acceptance
The example of the Amsterdam police makes clear that Data Science doesn’t stop at technology. The police developed an algorithm that plotted patrol routes that were most likely to lead to an arrest. Although the officers seemed very enthusiastic about the solution, they didn’t accept it and simply drove their own usual route through the city. Striving for data perfection without taking into account the acceptance by the end user is like a 24-carat diamond ring that no one wears.
Our Master of Data Science training is taught by Bert van der Zee, Dick Pouw, and Daan van Beek. The three men have more than 70 years combined experience in the profession and teach at various universities, including TIAS, School for Business & Society, and give masterclasses at home and abroad.
The Passionned Academy training courses are highly valued partly because of the high degree of interactivity. There is ample opportunity every training day to bring in your own cases and experiences to share with other participants. You’ll also work on concrete assignments, creating an ideal mix between theory and practice.
After completing our unique Master of Data Science training, you will receive a certificate from the Passionned Academy and an autographed copy of the book “We are Big Data” (nominated as management book of the year) and “The Intelligent Organization” (4th edition ).
The Master of Data Science is designed for anyone who wants to achieve a data-driven organization and at the same time wants to increase intelligence. The training is mainly aimed at (future) Data Science managers, Business Intelligence managers, IT managers, business managers, program managers, controllers, BI consultants, Data Scientists, and data analysts.
