IBM Statistics Academy - Your 10-Day Data Science BootcampIn times of Big Data, large data sets are a precious source of information. But how can you best use this resource? The demand for qualified data scientists exceeds by far the supply. The IBM Statistics Academy closes this gap and enables you not only to gather information but also analyse it statistically profounded in a short period of time.
Statistics is the art and science of using data to make better informed decisions.
Learn to use your data and make an entrepreneurial difference. Bakeries, for example, use their data to find a relation between the local weather and consumer preferences. Bakeries using this knowledge were able to optimize their production plans accordingly. This simple example shows how companies which use statistical insights for management decisions outperform the market. We want your company to be one of them.
With the IBM Statistics Academy you will learn how to use statistical methods for your business. Whether you are already working as a data analyst and wish to expand your knowledge, or are just beginning to explore the benefits of statistics, the IBM Statistics Academy has much to offer.
Attending the IBM Statistics Academy will allow you to make management decisions based on your numbers. Join us in building a smarter planet.

There are two possibilities for attending the IBM Academy. On the one hand, it is possible to select and attend specific modules which fit your needs. On the other hand, we offer the academy as a bootcamp.
The bootcamp is your fast-track to become a data-scientist. Within 10 days you will work through all modules from “Laying the Foundation” to “Telling the Story” and, with the help of our experience trainers, become a data scientist.
On completing the IBM Statistics Academy, you will be given the opportunity of attending the module U4A07G - Bring it to the Business (5 days) and apply your gained experience from the academy in a 5-day case study suited to your needs.
Our Coaching MethodsThe IBM Statistics Academy relies on three different teaching principles, irrespective of your module selection:
- Mentor-Mentee relationship: Very small training groups allowing for a closer connection between trainer and the participants, greatly benefitting the participants.
- Project based approach: Short and unrelated tasks will be replaced with a project based approach. Participants will work on a real and thus complex project where the participants face various interconnected challenges.
- Get-out-of-your-comfort-zone philosophy: From the very beginning participants will be challenged with tough real world business cases. With the continuous assistance our trainer, they will eventually be able to simplify these challenges into sets of solvable subtasks.
