Partnering with the Bank of England to Make Data More Impactful in the World of Business
We’re excited to announce our partnership with the Bank of England as the Employer Partner for the University of Cambridge Institute of Continuing Education Data Science Career Accelerator.
Most of the world’s leading companies employ data scientists, and 80% of the fastest-growing roles in the world are in data. But there’s a common problem that separates successful companies from those that fail: How to make data actionable and impactful.
By partnering with the Bank of England, our goal is to ensure that learners will not only receive cutting-edge education but will also have the unique opportunity to apply their knowledge within a real-world environment. The Employer Project – the capstone of Career Accelerator programmes – presents the ultimate opportunity for learners to experience what it’s like to work on a meaningful problem at a real company.
James Benford, Chief Data Officer at the Bank of England, expressed his enthusiasm for the collaboration:
The Bank is currently conducting a live business case study with learners enrolled in one of our other programmes, the LSE Data Analytics Career Accelerator. This case study involves examining sentiment analysis of speeches and the relationship to specific events in the UK, such as high inflation and increased cost of living. The Bank will be making use of an equally business-critical challenge for learners to solve in the Data Science Career Accelerator.
Dr James Gazzard, Director of Continuing Education at the Institute of Continuing Education, says:
This Career Accelerator is set to play a pivotal role in shaping the next generation of data scientists.
