Press Release: Business Science Partners With Method Data Science
Learn about our new partnership that delivers value to aspiring data scientists!
Founded by data science leader and mentor, Beau Walker, Method Data Science helps data scientists (and future data scientists) gain real-world experience working with companies. It’s like an accelerated internship where Method Data Scientists work on teams of 3 to 4 helping companies with their data science needs.
For data scientists, gaining real-world experience is often the biggest hurdle in advancing their career. This is the problem Method solves. Method’s students gain tangible experience they can add to their resumes and discuss with potential employers in interviews. This is invaluable.
“For data scientists, gaining real-world experience is often the biggest hurdle in advancing their career. This is the problem Method solves.”
Working on data science projects and teams is half the battle, the other half is gaining the knowledge of the data science tools and systems needed to generate Return-On-Investment (ROI) for the business. This is where Business Science provides the 1 + 1 = 10 effect.

Business Science provides the premium online education service called Business Science University that teaches business-specific courses in R and coming soon Python!!! We just landed Favio Vazquez, Principle Data Scientist at OXXO, as an instructor for the Python version of DS4B 201!
Business Science University is the perfect complement to the Method Data Science accelerator. The premium Data Science For Business (DS4B) Virtual Workshop teaches the fundamentals of Data Science For Business through an end-to-end data science project. The flagship course, Data Science For Business (DS4B 201), can be completed while the student is in the Method Data Science accelerator program. Taken in parallel, the DS4B 201 course multiplies their impact by combining top-tier data science education and real-world experience.
The end result is a strong foundation of data science tools, systems, and experience that help aspiring data scientists bring data-driven results to organizations.

Did you know that an organization that loses 200 high performing employees per year is essentially losing $15M/year in lost productivity? Many organizations don’t realize this because it’s an indirect cost. It goes unnoticed. What if you could use data science to predict and explain turnover in a way that managers could make better decisions and executives would see results? You will learn the tools to do so in our Virtual Workshop. Here’s an example of a Shiny app you will create.
Shiny App That Predicts Attrition and Recommends Management Strategies, Taught in DS4B 301 (Building A Shiny Web App)
Our first Data Science For Business Virtual Workshop teaches you how to solve this employee attrition problem in four courses that are fully integrated:
- DS4B 201: Predicting Employee Attrition with
- DS4B 301 (Coming Soon): Building A
- DS4B 302 (EST Q4): Data Communication With
RMarkdownReports and Presentations
- DS4B 303 (EST Q4): Building An R Package For Your Organization,
The Virtual Workshop is intended for intermediate and advanced R users. It’s code intensive (like these articles), but also teaches you fundamentals of data science consulting including CRISP-DM and the Business Science Problem Framework. The content bridges the gap between data science and the business, making you even more effective and improving your organization in the process.
