Great Learning is a global EdTech company offering professional and higher education programs in blended, classroom, and online modes across technology, data and business domains.
As an Alliance Member, Great Learning participates in annual conferences hosted by IDSS. In recent years the company has been involved in the annual Women in Data Science (WiDS) Cambridge conference, an event that attracts hundreds of participants regionally and abroad. In 2022, three Great Learning students were selected as part of a competition to present their research in the field of data science. The company also sponsored one-hour industry mentoring sessions as raffle prizes for select participants.
Beyond conferences, Great Learning students participate in IDSS Hackathons and Datathon events. One learner, a graduate of the Applied Data Science Program, said her knowledge from that program helped her contribute to her team’s win at MIT’s Policy Hackathon, a data-driven event where teams create policy proposals for real world challenges.
Great Learning is also featured as an IDSS Alliance member at two other annual conferences: the Statistics and Data Science Conference (SDSCon) in spring and the upcoming Technology, Data and Policy Conference, set to debut in fall 2022.
Online Data Science Courses
In addition to their Alliance membership, Great Learning offers an online course in collaboration with IDSS, Data Science and Machine Learning: Making Data-Driven Decisions. The ten-week course targets working professionals interested in expanding their data science skills and knowledge, and provides hands-on sessions led by Great Learning’s network of industry experts.
The company also hosts a live virtual workshop featuring IDSS faculty members, the Applied Data Science Program. This offering is a partnership with MIT Professional Education. See all current IDSS/GL programs.
