The rapid development of technology in general, the advances of artificial intelligence and the growing availability of data of any kind offer tremendous opportunities for companies and public organizations, but also challenges for the training of its professionals.
Finding wisdom in the data is essential, with data analytics becoming the perfect approach that allows combining organizational strategies with science of data.
In this context, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) joined forces with the Universidad de Chile to offer a new program in data analytics at the highest level to train professionals from Chile and the region.
As of May 2019, the Data Analytics Certificate (Diploma in Data Analytics) program will be taught in Santiago by the Universidad de Chile in conjunction with MIT professors, and will conclude with two weeks of courses in Cambridge, MA on campus at MIT Sloan.
The MIT Sloan-U de Chile joint certificate — the first program that MIT has offered with Latin American University — aims to prepare high-level professionals from the private and public sectors to make strategic decisions based on data (“data-driven decision making”).
