    MIT Experience: two-week Boston residential

    The program is imparted through Online learning for four months and an Immersive residential for two-weeks at MIT Data Science Lab’s Campus in Boston.

    Candidates will connect with leading research and industry experts and explore Data and Business Analytics trends. In this vibrant setting, participants engage in hands-on learning, applying analytics methods and techniques developed during the online courses in a real-world context.

      The program is divided into four key learning pillars:

      1. Business StrategySeveral internal and external factors can affect a business strategy (pandemics, wars, or inflation) and force organizations to optimize cost, be more agile with their supply chains or reach new markets and customers. These needs often require technical solutions like automation, real-time decisionmaking or complex optimization solutions.
      2. Business AnalyticsFrom Data Visualization to Big Data and GenAI, the portfolio of tools, data architectures and vendors looks livelier than ever. But simple questions still arise — where to start, how to choose and whether it solves the problems.
      3. Business DigitalizationHow do you merge business strategy with technology? Although choosing the right technology is essential, it’s useless if it’s not applied correctly. Digitalization is how processes evolve — but these changes need to be embraced by the people executing those processes and become part of the organizational culture.
      4. ExecutionTo successfully execute a strategy, you must choose the correct methodology to design, develop and deploy projects. The program covers Design Thinking, Agile Project Management and Change Management.
