Executive Curriculum

Our Executive Curriculum is perfect for CIOs, CEOs and other senior managers. It is the minimal “data literacy” curriculum for middle and upper managers who don’t want to get too close to the actual data science work, but need to understand what it is all about, how it can benefit them, and how they might manage it. 

The levels build up on another, each block represents a class of two days.

Data Literacy for Everyone

With the advent of automation, humans’ role has become to do what computers cannot. Many more white-collar workers—perhaps all of them—will end up “working with data” to some extent. This course for managers and workers without a strong quantitative background introduces a range of skills and applications related to critical thinking in such areas as forecasting, population measurement, set theory and logic, causal impact and attribution, scientific reasoning and the danger of cognitive biases. There are no prerequisites beyond high-school mathematics; this course has been designed to be approachable for everyone.

Intro to Predictive Analytics, Machine Learning, Data Science and AI

Our leading course has transformed the machine-learning and data-science practice of the many managers, sponsors, key stakeholders, entrepreneurs and beginning data-science practitioners who have attended it. This course is an intuitive, hands-on introduction to data science and machine learning. The training focuses on central concepts and key skills, leaving the trainee with a deep understanding of the foundations of data science and even some of the more advanced tools used in the field. The course does not involve coding, or require any coding knowledge or experience.

Strategic Decision Making with Data for Executives

This course is for executives and managers who want to leverage analytics to support their most vital decisions and enable better decision-making at the highest levels. It empowers senior executives with skills to make more effective use of data analytics. It covers contexts including strategic decision-making and shows attendees ways to use data to make better decisions. Attendees will learn how to receive, understand and make decisions from a range of analytics methods, including visualisation and dashboards. They will also be taught to work with analysts as effective customers.

Blockchain, Smart Contracts and Cryptocurrency

Blockchain is one of the most disruptive and least understood technologies to emerge over the previous decade. This course gives participants an intuitive understanding of blockchain in both public and private contexts, allowing them to distinguish genuine use cases from hype. We explore public crypto-currencies, smart contracts and consortium chains, interspersing theory with case studies from areas such as financial markets, health care, trade finance, and supply chain. The course does not require a technical background.
