"The data science skills I sharpened at The Data Incubator helped me analyze diversity in STEM education, model SaaS stock prices, and compare industry growth rates. The instructor's background in quantitative finance made for relevant use cases that benefit not only data scientists, but also data-driven finance people like myself."

"From day one I was getting my hands dirty working with data using industry-relevant tools. Having completed the program I'm now better equipped to manage engineering and product teams, and able to conduct sophisticated ad-hoc analysis. Everyone at TDI blew me away; truly exceptional."

David Kwon

"Their heavy focus on applied learning meant that I was working on real data and solving real problems right from the start. While lectures were a valuable component of their courses, the real learning took place while working on projects. These projects were practical, engaging, and instructive, and generally great opportunities to get hands-on experience with what I had learned in the lectures."
