Your journey to become a Business Data Scientist
Take a deep dive into the world of Business Data Science. The live sessions are designed as practical and interactive as possible. You will learn by applying your newly acquired data analysis skills in smaller group projects with your classmates, supported by the experts.
From Excel to advanced data manipulation with Python for beginners
By the end of this module, you will be able to identify the data sources useful for the project, to download data in various ways, manipulate them both from a spreadsheet as well as from a dataframe, archive data in various formats for subsequent uses and query a database.
Digital Narratives: from Data visualization to storytelling
This module will guide you through deciding and designing the most suitable data visualizations for your projects. Starting from principles and best practices, you’ll be able to pick appropriate visual representations, and to combine them in coherent and interconnected views (e.g. dashboards). The integration of different graphs, dashboards, and textual elements will eventually enable you to tell stories using the available data and the results of the analysis performed on them.
Artificial Intelligence, visual process design, implementation and execution
According to the available data and the project objectives, you will be able to understand which machine learning algorithms to choose, how to fine tune the hyperparameters in the training phase and how to put them in sequence to solve the business problem.
Design Thinking for Data Science processes
By the end of this module, for each concrete business problem, you will be able to identify the process phases linked to the various data science techniques, understanding how to associate them with the various stages of the ‚design thinking‘ methodology.

In only 12 weeks I had gained all the hard skills and soft skills to give me a real edge in my career as a junior digital professional. I feel like the Talent Garden Innovation School is so different and special because they really give importance and pay attention to the students and our professional growth.
Giulia, Talent Garden Innovation School Alumna
The weeks at Talent Garden Innovation School were super intense: theoretical and practical lessons, the realization of a group project with a partner company and a personal project that I worked night and day on in the last two weeks. But they have also been amazing weeks: night-time dinners, organized events on campus and foosball matches during breaks. I also had the opportunity to
experience a trip experience: 5 days of full immersion, useful for getting to know important international companies and improving my skills in the field. I can't even count how many cool people I met during this journey.
Tommaso, Talent Garden Innovation School Alumnus
A perspective on the education that I wouldn’t otherwise get. Maybe I can also cooperate with Talent Garden or with some of the companies that we got to know here to actually become more professional in the way we are doing things.
Innovative spaces, the rooms, the people, and the whole information that gets transferred. I think it’s a really really good approach for people in our creative industry to get to know a lot of different things and new technologies.
It’s a perfect combination of so many aspects that provides a lot of chances for young people, especially students or newcomers in this whole working world. It is just the right thing for people who love challenges.
It's a perfect way to learn A LOT in a very short time. So if you want to skip university, just go to Talent Garden Innovation School. I also like that it's a new way of learning and studying and not old fashioned university style.
I really enjoyed and loved the course. I'm really sad it's over. It was such a great experience and I grew so much as a person in the best possible way. Talent Garden gave me so much and I really found myself in this course. The experts and the content was awesome and I feel like I have learned so much and feel very equipped for the job market. Thank you much for everything and organising all the events and just creating such a great experience for us.
State of the art contents, great teachers, good place to learn, dedication from Talent Garden, practical knowledge that you can apply immediately.
I would recommend this course to anyone I know and care about. It was a great experience and I learned so much, even though I didn't think it would be possible in such a short amount of time. Talent Garden Vienna is such a lovely, warm but professional place, it's just great to spend every day here.
