Secured placement in the Goldman Sachs 2020 Spring Insight Program

"Blossom Academy offered me the opportunity to learn and interact with people who have data science passion as myself. The lessons were so impactful that I decided to do my final year capstone project in data science. The instructors are very friendly and always eager to lend a helping hand whenever necessary. The lessons were practical and served as the foundation upon which I will build my skill sets in data science. The weekly Q&A sessions with Industry professionals was one of the highlights of the program for me as it offered informative resources about the practice of data science, how to land a data science role among others. Beyond the course, instructors have been instrumental in helping me streamline my capstone project. I will definitely recommend Blossom Academy to any aspiring Data Scientist because beyond the cause, the network of people you interact and engage with will become lifelong and will prove useful in their careers."

Data scientists see patterns in data where others see nothing

Data Science is one of the most important and versatile fields in our data-driven world. Modern technology has given us access to huge amounts of data, and with this has come the ability to extract useful information and use it in ways that were previously impossible.

Data scientists find appropriate data to solve business questions, perform analyses, interpret results in a business context, and present these results to a broader audience using visual techniques and methods to make a compelling case.
