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. This applies to almost any industry, whether you're interested in global health, business, public policy, or tech.
Our internships are different from the usual. Instead of leaving you on your own, we provide you with daily support and occasional classes to cover additional material. That means you'll be able to create huge value in a short time—all of which you can add to your resume to show future employers.
James has been involved in the data analytics space for more than 6 years. During his MBA he consulted with the Statistics department at UCT for data-based MBA and PhD work and moved into data-consulting outside of varsity. Some inspiration likely came from their top-3 placement in a 2015 Barclays international hackathon - presenting a machine learning model's performance on NAEDO-timing optimization.
iXperience provided an incredible amount of information, experience, and guidance in order to gain a better sense of what the internship process is like and how to collaborate on real-world problems. By combining a fast-paced class environment with the exposure to company representatives, I gained so many valuable insights that I will cherish and apply to my future endeavors.
After completing the course I’m a couple of steps further in the search for meaning through data. If not, I’ve gained a family of amazing people. At the end of the day, that’s what data science is. A quest to find meaning where it didn’t exist before.
iXperience was a good opportunity to further my knowledge. I was also able to develop work world insights and investigate what I wanted to do in my future. I really loved this program!
iXperience is geared toward teaching a breadth of practical, industry-relevant tools, and I believe I will apply the skills I've learned over the past weeks for many years to come, regardless of my career path. The unwavering support of the teaching team allowed me to learn much faster than I expected.
I've honestly learned more in these few weeks than I have in three months of many of my college courses. It's been an honor and a privilege to work with someone as knowledgeable as our teacher, Andrew. I woke up every day interested in what we were learning next.
iX really helped me solidify my interest in data science. All of the teachers were really helpful and made sure I had everything I needed. I learned a lot about how to navigate remote working and what data science work is like.
