International Big Data Certifications Add Big to the Employability of Students
With just about everything around running on it, Data Science is pulling away the best of engineering and IT jobs on the market today into Big Data. Get your institution DASCA-recognized to get your students ready for Big Data careers!
Over 236 universities are currently in various stages of DASCA accreditation, including institutions shortlisted and recommended for subsidized accreditation under the World Data Science Initiative (WDSI).
Landing the best of Big Data jobs, or starting out and growing right in your Data Science career today demands assuring employers about your capabilities, promise, and potential of being a complete professional with comprehensive knowledge of the fundamentals as well as the leading-edge in your chosen Data Science domain. In fact, even if you dream of hatching out a successful Data Science start-up; an international Data Science Credential doesn’t just stack you up rightly in terms of knowledge and exposure to industry, best-practices, and standards; it also helps inspire potential investors and partners.
DASCA Credentials are based on the world’s most comprehensive and rigorous Data Science Body of Knowledge (DASCA-DSBoK™), fleshed around the seminal Data Science Essential Knowledge Framework – the EKF™. DASCA Certifications validate and test credential–holders in over 30 profession–critical knowledge vectors along the five EKF™ essential-knowledge prongs. Nothing else adds a bigger, most international edge to the employability of professionals for the international technology industry that needs 7.5 million data analysts, technologies, engineers and data scientists by year 2025.
We live in a world awash with data. Data is proliferating at an astonishing rate—we have more and more data all the time, and much of it was collected in order to improve decisions about some aspect of business, government, or society. If we can’t turn that data into better decision making through quantitative analysis, we are both wasting data and probably creating suboptimal performance.
