Data has been called the new global currency, and its meteoric rise is transforming entire industries—and driving the demand for practitioners who can wield its power. From health care and finance to entertainment, cyber security and beyond, the need for data scientists continues to grow in tandem with opportunities for career advancement within the field.
To help fill this talent gap and further the use of data science to solve real-world problems, Columbia Engineering Executive Education has partnered with Emeritus to create the Applied Data Science course.
Since this course requires an intermediate knowledge of Python, you will spend the first part of this course learning Python for Data Science taught by Emeritus. This will provide you with the comprehensive programming knowledge required to put data to work & derive the maximum benefit from the Applied Data Science course.
This course is highly effective for professionals looking to fill this talent gap and further the use of data science to solve real-world problems.

Emeritus follows a unique online model. This model has ensured that nearly 90 percent of our learners complete their course.
Orientation WeekThe first week is orientation week. During this week you will be introduced to the other participants in the class from across the world. You will also learn how to use the learning platform and other learning tools provided.
Weekly GoalsOn other weeks, you have learning goals set for the week. The goals would include watching the video lectures and completing the assignments. All assignments have weekly deadlines.
Recorded Video LecturesThe recorded video lectures are by faculty from the collaborating university.
Live WebinarsEvery few weeks, there are live webinars conducted by Emeritus course leaders. Course leaders are highly-experienced industry practitioners who contextualize the video lectures and assist with questions you may have regarding your assignments. Live webinars are usually conducted between 1 pm and 3 pm UTC on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Clarifying DoubtsIn addition to the live webinars, for some courses, the course leaders conduct Office Hours, which are webinar sessions that are open to all learners. During Office Hours, learners ask questions and course leaders respond. These are usually conducted every alternate week to help participants clarify their doubts pertaining to the content.
Follow-UpThe Emeritus Program Support team members will follow up and assist over email and via phone calls with learners who are unable to submit their assignments on time.
Continued Course AccessYou will continue to have access to the course videos and learning material for up to 12 months from the course start date.
Assignments are given out weekly and they are based on the lectures or tutorials provided. They need to be completed and submitted as per the deadline for grading purposes. Extensions may be provided based on a request sent to the support team.
It is an open forum where participants pin their opinions or thoughts regarding the topic under discussion.
