The analysis of large volumes of data has already become part of the workaday routine for an increasing number of employees at a growing number of companies. Many more are in the process of gradually building or expanding their skills in this fast-growing field. After all, the data can be used by companies to adapt their services and products better and better to customer requirements, among other things. Qualified specialists are accordingly in high demand all over the world. So the online education service provider Udacity had good reason for dedicating its multifaceted program to the education and continuing training of IT experts in fields including data analysis. Bertelsmann itself, one of Udacity’s biggest shareholders, has a huge demand for Data Science professionals and in September last year announced it would be funding 15,000 Udacity scholarships in the field of data analysis for beginners and experts. They are open to employees at all Bertelsmann companies worldwide, as well as for interested people from outside the company. Applications can now be submitted directly via Udacity
