My experience at Principal Analytics Prep has been life changing. I’ve been out of work for a few months and Principal Analytics Prep not only taught me valuable tech and reasoning skills, but it showed me my potential and how I can go beyond that.
I walked away with a very objective attitude towards the complex world of data analytics. I really appreciate the invaluable real world insights and cases that were discussed in class.
Taking Kaiser’s class on careers in data science was invaluable to my recent career change from the music business to analytics. Kaiser is one of the few people in the data arena who is a high-powered scientist, a great communicator, and has had extensive business experience.
Principal Analytics Prep is the Harvard of Data Science Business Analytics boot camps! Students in the program are empowered with analytics tools and are trained to think in ways that equip them to deliver immediate and impactful results in data-centric organizations.
I am so glad I left law school for this. I went from asking “will I get a job” to “where will I get a job.”
The tech industry tends to overwhelm its participants and spectators with glory initiatives, trends, and breakthroughs, which makes it hard to identify the directions that truly matter for a personal career. Through engaging with instructors, guest lectures, guided career sessions, and practical courses, I was able to focus on a sustainable long-term path in the data industry.
The assortment of classes and experiences builds together so you feel transformed into a data scientist by the end of it
Kaiser Fung has done a great job thoughtfully designing the intensive, so the data analytics, data science, statistics, business and communications all fit and flow together, allowing the concepts and actual programming skills development fall into place in a comprehensive way.
Their hand-picked faculty are a vast pool of knowledge in the given concepts they teach in the program, and are well-seasoned in supervisory, managerial roles as well, including in the realm of hiring. So I have come to respect their insights, input, and constructive critiques at leveraging our individual skillsets, including the skills we learned in Principal Analytics Prep, to our future employers.
This program allowed me to change careers and enter an industry that I had been trying to transition into for some time. It’s definitely intensive so you want to be able to dedicate yourself full time because you are absorbing a lot of information but it is definitely worth it.
What most coding and technical classes can teach you is the ability to absorb a particular language and its nuances, but Prof Fung’s class groomed me with a critical and analytical mindset towards handling complex data problems, the potential to model data based on core statistical concepts, and the ability to determine the integrity of data in a very realistic way.
Principal Analytics Prep provides the most comprehensive coaching and career development program I have ever seen!
My main goal when I joined the program was to equip myself with the state of the art skills in data analytics so that I could transition out of academia into the business industry, and I can say now I am one of the few who succeeded.
After the bootcamp I accepted a job offer that nearly doubled my income.
I ended up with multiple job offers, just from the connections I formed in this program.
As the intensive is held in person in a small group in a formal classroom setting, the learning environment with top instructors is extraordinary. It’s great to cut to the chase and learn hands on skills.
This course gave me real business world insights, especially compared to college courses.
From a technical standpoint you will learn the basics of a lot of different languages, understand their strengths and weaknesses, and get lots of tools and resources that allow you to continue to develop your skills past the program.
The business instructors, who are senior executives in major corporation across the U.S., bring practical and innovative insights to the classes that I did not experience in my MBA program.
The program at Principal Analytics Prep is very well-organized, touching on so many fields to prepare participants for data analyses in the digital era. This brings out all the difference between Principal Analytics Prep and so many other data science programs that I have had a chance of looking into their curriculum. The different courses are organized in such a way that they merge well into each other, i.e. a previous course will merge well into a future one in a way that participants can relate what’s new with previous material.
I am ultra-confident that with my Principal Analytics Prep family’s support system, there’s nowhere to go but up for me.
Every one of my classmates is exceedingly generous with their time and expertise both inside and outside the classroom as we help each other with projects and assignments. Since every one of us brings a unique and interesting set of talents, experiences, and expertise to the cohort we are and will be a great resource for each other.
I had researched many other programs, both online and formal programs, and without a doubt, Principal Analytics Prep is the finest data analytics and data science program.
Kaiser’s perspective takes in everything from coding to management skills from the highest levels of academia and business. His class enabled me to identify an area that makes sense for my technical skills a personality-based, human point of view as well. The information was invaluable in my recent career change.
The Principal Analytics Prep curriculum is very comprehensive, providing a rich mix of quantitative and qualitative training – Advanced Analytics combined with a Mini-MBA.
I’ve dabbled a little in programming before coming here, but now I can do data visualization or even machine learning projects, which I can show at my next job interview.
As a college student who was used to huge lecture halls, the small, but engaging classroom environment drastically improved my learning experience.
Prof Fung not only gives you the requisite quantitative skills, but being an industry expert for years, he also gives you the soft skills which most analytics classes do not give. I definitely think the world of analytics needs more Professors like Prof Kaiser Fung because anyone can teach you numbers but not everyone can give you a “Numbersense”.
Each class taught me valuable insights that I would not have been able to obtain on my own. Not only did the instructors provide excellent explanations of complex technical concepts, they also shared their knowledge of how these skills were applied in various industries.
Guest speakers are drawn from a wide variety of backgrounds, including health care, web design and analytics, information technology, etc. Their visits also increase relevant people in your network.
Before I joined the program, I started studying some Python programming and machine learning topics on my own, but found I needed a broader set of skills and deeper network to actually land a data science job. This program absolutely delivered what I needed, because it was designed and taught by actual working data scientists who know what they are looking for in candidates.
The instructors are respectable, very smart, and diverse.
You get a comprehensive overview of the industry, get to meet a lot of accomplished instructors that are currently working in the field and get the benefit of an amazing network filled with contacts ready and willing to help you.
Principal Analytics Prep has exceeded my wildest expectations and have proven to be a tremendous value-added.
Program mastermind Kaiser Fung is a brilliant educator — his depth of understanding paired with his ability to elicit active and engaged learning is wonderful to experience.
Kaiser, the program’s founder, teaches a fantastic class on statistical reasoning that until this day causes me to question assumptions behind analyses and models I see.
If you are looking for a data science/ business analytics program that will not only graduate you but will walk with you in your job search, then PAP is the program to be in. Search no more, go for PAP.
