(DS02) Data Science for Managers

This one day course on ‘Data Science for Managers’ aims a) to provide an overview of Data Science to managers, and b) to train them in running a successful data science project.


This course provides with all the vital information needed for successfully managing a Data Science project. The course can be viewed as an introductory level course on data science for managers.

The course provides a brief but complete overview of the field of Data Science. It provides information on important issues such as inception of a data science project, managing of data science projects in terms of liaising with business, asking the right questions, model building, deployability and post-production analysis.

It also discusses various issues of interest to AI management such as data privacy, issues of regulations
