Data Science@LMU Professional Certificate Program

In the decade of "big data" where data is recorded in almost all areas of daily life, ever larger and more complex data is available. The skill of analyzing and extracting information from such data has become an indispensable core competence in research and industry.

As the demand for suitably trained data scientists having these skills is already noticeable and will probably continue to grow steadily, the Faculty of Mathematics, Informatics and Statistics of the LMU decided to develop a Professional Certificate Program in collaboration with the Unit for Professional Training at the LMU. The certificate program is intended to create a further training path for employees who already have a university degree and a job in a similar field.
