## Curriculum

## Overview

Data science combines math and statistics, specialized programming, advanced analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning with specific subject matter expertise to uncover actionable insights hidden in an organization’s data. These insights can be used to guide decision making and strategic planning.

A data scientist is a professional who creates programming code and combines it with statistical knowledge to create insights from data.
