Obtaining a Data Science Certification is a great way to gain experience and knowledge in data science without the time and expense of earning a degree. It is not always necessary to have a degree in data science or a post-graduate degree to be a great data scientist. Hands-on coursework with projects validating one’s practical skills are increasingly accepted by hiring managers and research institutes alike in lieu of a formal degree in data science.
‘Corporate AI Adoption Creates Trillions in Value Globally’ - WSJ
With an increasing worldwide demand to hire data scientists and a considerable cost and shortage of supply of data scientists has created a supply-side gap.
AI could potentially deliver an additional global economic activity of around US$13TN by 2030, or about 16% higher cumulative GDP compared with today; this amounts to about 1.2% additional GDP growth per year.
FTI offers a comprehensive, 5-month Onsite Data Science Certification Course. Our third and fourth onsite cohorts starting date is January 16th, 2021.
Our approach to data science professional certification course is to teach the underlying concepts, statistics, and applications of Data Science.
