"It was a great course which gave me a good introductory overview of data science, and possible ways of putting in place a data science strategy for an organization. Furthermore, the interactive nature of the course made it much more interesting."

"At our company we have tried for the last few years to use our data more effectively in our decision making. This resulted in an interesting journey with a steep learning curve where we accomplished many things, but also made a lot of mistakes. Attending the Data Science Leadership course helped us in many ways. Ultimately we are now in a position to work towards our data vision and goals more effectively."

Managing Director

I was personally inspired and reinvigorated to continuously pursue the journey towards effective and valuable use of data to support our business strategic objectives."
