Whether you’re a data scientist at a startup or a seasoned analyst at a large corporation, you understand the value of data insights. Over the course of six weeks, you will review a broad spectrum of data-centric topics including recommendation engines, regressions, network and graphical modeling, anomaly detection, hypothesis testing, machine learning, and big data analytics.




Launching February 21st, 2017

Experts say that 90% of all the data in the world was created in the past few years, so it’s not surprising that many companies are struggling to translate gigabytes of raw data into actionable insights. To help you with this herculean task, MIT Professional Education has partnered with the MIT Institute for Data, Systems, and Society (IDSS) to introduce a new digital course, Data Science: Data to Insights.


Through in-depth lectures from our MIT IDSS faculty members, made up of renowned faculty from across all of MIT, you’ll acquire the theories, strategies, and tools you need to answer a broad range of questions such as:


  • What is clustering and when should I use it?
  • What is the best way to design experiments and conduct hypothesis testing using my data?
  • How should I do model selection and avoid over-fitting?
  • What are the latest trends in machine learning?
  • How do graphical models and network models differ?


Upon successful completion of the course, you will earn a Certificate of Completion and CEUs from MIT Professional Education.


Drive your company’s success

With the strategies you gain at Data Science: Data to Insights, you’ll be well prepared to analyze data, increase organizational efficiency, and address your company’s most pressing data challenges.
