NEW YORK, Jan. 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Flatiron School, a global institution that trains students in 21st-century skills like software engineering, data science and cybersecurity, has been selected by The University of Cambridge Institute of Continuing Education (ICE) to support the launch of a new online Data Science program. The 10-week course, which will begin in April 2021, aims to provide practical technology skills, fundamentals of statistics, and work-relevant learning for students with minimal technical background.
The Cambridge Data Science program consists of six online modules on the Python programming language, while also offering practical experience. For example, during the program, students work with and evaluate real data that’s relevant to genuine business problems.
Adam Enbar, chief executive officer and co-founder of Flatiron School, said: “We’re excited and honored to have been selected by The University of Cambridge Institute of Continuing Education to bring our proven Data Science curriculum to global learners studying with Cambridge. Business success and innovation is achieved through data-driven insights, and the actions they enable. Through this course, students gain confidence in their command of data, and a future career in technology.”
Dr. James Gazzard, Director, University of Cambridge Institute of Continuing Education said: “Our focus is to ensure all adults can access education and training, at all life stages, which enables them to participate in rapidly changing fields. Data Science is one of the fastest-growing areas across the global knowledge economy and is in high demand by employers. Our collaboration with Flatiron School will provide a welcoming, understandable and work-relevant gateway to the subject where adult peers, working with expert tutors, can begin to learn, think and apply new skills in this crucial emerging field which sits at the heart of the fourth industrial revolution.”
More recently, Harvard Business School (HBS) worked with Flatiron School to develop a modern bootcamp focused on providing real-life data science experience to HBS students. Via this course, Harvard introduced a full-time, eight-week remote-learning program in the summer of 2020. Designed for HBS students with a basic technical background, this Data Science bootcamp culminated with a two-week capstone project that allowed HBS MBA participants to work directly with clients on real-world, high-impact issues.
