General Information

Target Group: The Data Science Certificate Program addresses professionals and executives who want to continue their education in the field of data science, want to learn how to extract information from data, rethink and enhance data analysis procedures in order to prevent wrong decisions and who want to get to know the most important software products that are used in the field of big data analytics.

Language of instruction: English (unless all participants understand German well enough, however, the course material itself will always be in English)

Application deadline for the next term: tba

Important: For many practical tutorials in the Data Science Certificate Program basic knowledge of the statistical programming language R is required. If you don't have any basic knowledge in R or want to refresh your knowledge in R, we highly recommend you either self-study or book a separate R basic course at Essential Data Science Training GmbH (LMU Spin-off), which will be available before the beginning of every program. For more information, visit the R basic course registration page.


Duration: Normal Course (9 days and one exam day) or Live Online Course (18 half-days and one exam day), depending on the situation.

Workload: about 200 hours (including preparation time, follow-up work and for the exam).
