DUBLIN & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--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.”
