Managing a business or organization in today’s world is more science than art. At the core of that science is data, and the ability to unleash its power and extract value from it is critical to any company’s success. Data science and machine learning have transformed entire industries and continue to do so. The data revolution has led to a spike in the demand for data scientists and machine learning practitioners that shows no signs of slowing down.
The Postgraduate Diploma in Applied Data Science is designed to help participants master data science, from the critical foundations of statistics and probability to working hands-on with machine learning models using Python, the world’s most popular programming language. Analytical models are more powerful when they are built with the right statistics, and this comprehensive diploma can help you learn the key statistics and probability concepts to build effective models, enhance your data interpretation skills and make well-informed decisions.

The diploma requires an undergraduate knowledge of statistics, (descriptive statistics, regression, sampling distributions, hypothesis testing, interval estimation etc.) linear algebra and probability. You would be required to possess a knowledge of programming concepts like variables, loops, functions, OOP etc.
Some hands on knowledge with Python Language and Jupyter Notebook IDE will be necessary. All assignments/application projects will be done in Jupyter Notebooks using the Python programming language. Emeritus offers a complimentary Python for Data Analytics certificate course to meet this prerequisite. Participants who successfully complete this certificate course will receive a certificate of completion from Emeritus Institute of Management.
Please provide your work experience and your current employer via the application.
