The only career development program...

  • Created by: Leaders from companies like GreyAtom, DataGiri, Flexiloans, Fractal, and more.
  • Featuring: Top Data Science Leaders from our partners.
  • Tested: 1,000+ alumni have brought learnings back for curating this study plan.

I don't think there's a more exciting field to be in than data science, and that's partly because to be a successful data scientist you have to always be learning. GreyAtom helps you learn more than just the foundations of analytics and machine learning. It helps you become a better learner and that's a skill that will reward you for the rest of your life.

— Paul Meinshausen, Mentor @ GreyAtom

52 Weeks of Data Science is a new kind of career development

Today's top performers want applicable skills that drive impact.

That's why we created 52 Weeks of Data Science. We focus on:

  • Application over memorization. You'll spend time applying every lesson directly to real datasets.
  • Results over credentials. A curriculum designed to give you the tools to do the job, not a certificate that qualifies you for the job.
  • Going deep rather than the surface. GreyAtom's curated material is the culmination of years of experience at top companies from dozens of leaders in Data Science.

Continual learning over expertise. After every cohort, we spend 100+ hours getting feedback, updating curriculum and curating relevant, current material.
