DUBLIN & NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/bigdata?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#bigdatalt;/agt;–Dublin Business School (DBS), Ireland’s largest independent college, has
partnered with leading data science training provider Metis
on the college’s first internationally delivered live online course, a
machine learning module taught live in Dublin by Metis’s New York City
data science experts.

Part of Dublin
Business School’s new Master of Science Degree in Data Analytics
,
the 12-week Machine Learning module was custom built by Metis data
science experts to teach students how to use machine learning techniques
and skillsets to achieve business goals.

One of the first of its kind in Ireland, the master’s degree program is
accredited by Quality and Qualifications Ireland, the national agency
responsible for qualifications and quality assurance in higher
education. Metis, which was launched in 2014 by Kaplan, Inc. in the
United States, is accredited by the Accrediting Council for Continuing
Education and Training, an agency recognized by the US Department of
Education. All Metis bootcamp and corporate training programs are
designed and taught by expert data science practitioners, and Metis
alumni in the US have gone on to work at top companies including
Instagram, IBM, Spotify, Tumblr, Facebook, BuzzFeed, Deloitte, Apple,
Tinder, CapitalOne, Uber, and many more.

“Dublin has become a top European headquarters for technology
multinationals, so the demand for data science expertise in the city is
accelerating,” said Dr. Deborah Berebichez, Chief Data Scientist at
Metis. “As Metis expands internationally to cities where data science
talent is needed, we’re not losing sight of what we do best: providing
dynamic, engaging learning experiences taught by top practitioners in
the field.”

Students from all over the world are increasingly choosing to study in
Dublin, which is also home to Europe’s
fastest-growing tech worker population
. Dublin
is set to overtake London as the biggest European data center market in
2019
. Officially launched in January 2019, the first Machine
Learning module cohort of thirty students includes learners from India,
Pakistan, Nigeria, and Turkey. International students who receive
master’s degrees from DBS are eligible to live and work in Ireland for
two years.

Executive Dean of Dublin Business School, Andrew Conlan-Trant, said,
“We’re really pleased to commence this very exciting collaboration with
Metis. The experience for students is hugely enhanced by bringing the
deep expertise of Metis into the DBS classroom, and live online delivery
has a very positive impact on engagement in the class. This is a real
example of the strength of Kaplan’s scale and breadth and the benefit it
delivers to students.”
