Data Science for Business Leaders

While there is a growing demand for data scientists and engineers, there is also a need for individuals who can bridge technical and business teams within an enterprise. These individuals, often called data translators, possess deep company and industry knowledge as well as a working understanding of data, analytics, and AI. Given the lengthy time to accumulate the requisite deep company and industry knowledge, existing seasoned business professionals who have already acquired a good grasp of the technical issues are often best suited to fill this role. This module covers topics in big data, data science, analytics, and AI that every data translator should know. We discuss foundational concepts, tools, and applications of data science and machine learning through a series of lectures and case studies.
