Data Science | WU Vienna Short Program

Smarter decisions, powered by data

In times of digitalization, where buzzwords such as Business Intelligence (BI) and Marketing Automation are omnipresent, companies are confronted with huge challenges: How can they optimize their decision-making-process on the basis of an unimaginable mass of data, originating from a variety of sources? The answer lies in data science. To meet this need WU's Executive Academy has designed a cutting edge program: in just a few months, you will get to know the tools, techniques, and fundamental concepts that you need to know in order to make an impact as a data scientist. You will learn how to unleash the potential of unused data resources within your enterprise - and how to approach this.

Get expertise by working on real projects

During the course of the program, you will work through real-life case studies, with datasets from different domains (e.g. marketing, supply chain management) and will gain experience across the entire data science process: explorative data analysis, data munging, modelling, validation and cleansing, visualization, and communication.
