Bootcamps focusing on data science aim to set students up for workplace success. NYC Data Science Academy is conducting a series of training it calls data science “bootcamps.” These full-time bootcamps accept talented students from a wide range of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) backgrounds and equip them with the skills they need to hit the ground running as data scientists on day one. Data science bootcamps are separated from universities by offering more hands-on skills, real work experience, industry connections, and job placement. MGI reports a predicted shortage of 190,000 skilled data scientists, and 1.5 million managers capable of implementing big data insights by 2018 (Big Data: The Next Frontier).
