Our Training “Data Science for managers” provides a non-technical introduction into the most relevant aspects of artificial intelligence and business analytics. By a combination of lecturettes, case studies, exercises and interactive discussions participants learn how to analyse and interpret data. We will rely on easy-to-use tools to analyse data, that is, we do not expect participants to be able to program or to code.
The aim is to provide executive students with a quick but thorough understanding of modern methods, that are about to shape the (business) world. The target group of this executive training are professionals that want to learn about potential applications of AI and that want to improve their decision making skills. Participants receive at the end of this training a course certificate of participation.
