The DSFM Fast Track was an excellent blend of high-level strategy, technical details, and real-world applications. It helped me to understand Data Science in a much more concrete way. I will certainly direct others to come!

The course is like a Neural Network on steroids. Content is deep and wide, but very well explained, and delivered with passion by Ken and the team.

DSFM provided a very good understanding of what Machine Learning really means. Now I know the steps that I have to take to analyse my data, build a model, tune the model, understand the outcome, and communicate the findings. But most importantly, it took away the fear that Machine Learning is a subject beyond my capabilities as a chemical (non-software) engineer - I gained the confidence that I can do this myself.

Impressive lectures, demos, and exercises from the entire team.

The DSFM Boot Camp has been the best continuous education course I’ve attended in a very long time. Amidst the current hype on ML and AI, it's good to hear from a neutral and expert source on the possibilities and the pitfalls of the field - not just on the conceptual level, but also down to the implementation. I would strongly recommend DSFM to anybody who is getting into data science. They do a great job at teaching the essentials in an enlightening, fun and interactive way !
Jonathan Friedli, Senior Automotive Development Engineer

DSFM showed a lot of use cases of Data Science in a business-near context. Concepts were brought to you in the easiest possible way so that business people such as myself could take away the most from the course.
Simon Roth, Head of Accounts Payable
SBB AG

This very intensive course gave me a comprehensive overview of a vast and fast-moving domain. The engaging teaching by Prof. Younge and his team – with lectures and many hands-on exercises – helps you to understand the complicated concepts.

Excellent Data Science course. Intensive but you get your money's worth. I'd recommend it to anyone interested in the topic and not afraid to put their hands into the real thing.
Erwan Grasland, CFO

In DSFM, you learn deep down what it really takes to implement a Data Science project. For me, it was an eye opener. Now I have a better understanding of what is needed in terms of the people, knowledge, IT infrastructure, commitment, and dedicated budget to be successful. I'd recommend this course to anyone who needs to understand what it takes to enter the data science world. Professor Younge and his team are passionate about Data Science and are able to transmit their knowledge and experience in a very effective and fascinating way, with a lot of practical demos and exercises.

It was inspiring to see how modern technology can enable new insights from data. DSFM provided the impulse for self-transformation, encouraging me to leave my comfort zone and dive into a more quantitative field than the one in which I’m used to operating.
Martin Schlegel, Head Corporate Reporting
Straumann Group

A helpful course to look beyond the buzzwords of the industry and understand the key concepts, methodologies, applications, pitfalls, and limitations of the field. A good balance between theory and exercises. Recommend for those wanting to understand the details of data science for strategic planning.
Ivo dos Santos, Business Intelligence Analyst


This week-long course at EPFL is highly recommend for every manager, coordinator, analyst, engineer, consultant etc. who is - or will soon be - collaborating with experts in ML/AI. DSFM delivers the essence of theory combined with practical coding exercises (down in the weeds of Data Science) on a state of the art campus. By adding cross-industry networking on top, the program was able to create a very sustainable learning momentum. Thank you Prof. Kenneth Younge & Team for providing an outstanding (and intensive) learning experience!
Severin Gygax, Data Driven Business Manager
PostFinance AG

Now definitively convinced that at the current level ML/AI can be a game changer for many of your businesses. It is at the root of a new era of productivity and process improvement.

I highly recommend Data Science for Managers! Prof. Younge gives an extensive overview of the field and the course helped me to improve how I work with our Machine Learning engineers. The highly-interactive nature of the demos and teaching assistants also help one to better understand the strengths and limitations of each algorithm. If you need to come up to speed quickly - so you can collaborate with a data science team or spot new opportunities for your business - this course is for you!
Alen Arslanagic, CEO
Visium

The DSFM bootcamp was an excellent, no-nonsense, hands-on eye-opener for me. Highly recommended if you also like to get your hands a wee bit dirty.
Markus Inderbitzin, Head IT Operations

It's been a busy week with long days of studying, but I can say it has been worthwhile. Learning about concepts of Data Science & AI paired with an understanding about how to evaluate and improve models can definitely help everyone working with our Einstein products. And beyond that it's great to get a perspective on how things can be done programmatically as we went through many hands-on exercises in Python.
Dennis Baeringhausen, Success Manager Analytics Cloud

Very pleased to have taken the “data science for managers” boot camp course at EPFL this week. Great job, Kenneth Younge, Maximilian Hofer the whole team to achieve the quality of the course! Big respect for you data science guys out there!

Great training, very good balance between strategic and technical levels. Perfect for managers willing to understand how to identify opportunities to implement Data Science in their business and how to build the proper environment/teams to drive the projects.
