Berkeley Executive Education met and exceeded my expectations by challenging my thought process, the speed of execution, and leadership. I went back after the class and had a leadership off-site and challenged my team on how we can execute faster, improve results, and implement innovation quicker. Over the past three weeks, we have aligned our resources in the right areas and improved our productivity by 10 plus percent. We will be implementing a few more key changes in the near future.
"The BPDSA was the only one (program) which offered an executive approach to Data Science, from building the team, profiling, tolling and structuring it to finding solutions in the market and proposing and tracking projects making sure the desired results not only are achievable but made sense. The BPDSA mixed a good portion of the needed theoretical/math skils with very practical real cases. It also brings some industry insight from data science applications in the real business world. Data Science is very challenging as the projects would vary depending on bus. needs and resources available, the program gives us a solid base for us to build our skills and competencies needed in the DS world."

"Before going to Berkeley, I wanted to better know my kind of leadership and how to enhance it. I also expected to meet great people, both among the faculty and the other students, who could help me in this. Both goals were attained thanks to the course; we have even set up the tools to keep in touch among the students. Another goal I had was to learn new concepts and tools that I could apply to my daily professional life. I learned very useful things based on recent research results, in particular about hiring processes and how to make teamwork more effective... the course has given me the push to really pursue my objectives day after day."
"The practical insights and detailed work of academic research provided by Professor Gregory La Blanc & Dr. Peter C. Wilton brought so much clarity to some grey areas around how to recognize transformational opportunities, role of big data and building a digital-ready organization."
