    Summer Accelerator Program Review (for Students)

    The Principal Analytics Prep Summer Accelerator Program was a life-changing experience. The program's holistic approach to data science taught me both the hard and soft skills required to launch a career path in the world of data analytics. Each class taught me valuable insights that I would not have been able to obtain on my own. All the instructors implemented a very hands-on approach to learning the technical skills needed for data analysis. Not only did the instructors provide excellen...

    Excellent investment.

    I wanted to move from the public sector into something else after a masters degree and 10 years of experience fundraising. After research several options I was very impressed to find PAP. I was looking for a small student/teacher ratio and training on how to build on my former skills and spin them for a career in technology and data. 

    PAP was AMAZING. I was even given a partial scholarship after negotiating it and presenting my case. After the bootcamp I accepted a job offer that n...

    A life-changing experience

    I attended this boot camp back in 2016 when it was called rSQUAREedge. I am extremely glad I did because it was the crucial turning point that launched me into my dream career as a data scientist. 

    Before I joined the program, I started studying some Python programming and machine learning topics on my own, but found I needed a broader set of skills and deeper network to actually land a data science job. This program absolutely delivered what I needed, because it was designed and t...

    Invest a career, not a job

    I took this program in Fall 2016. It was the first quantitative course I have taken since high school. I have worked in the Bay Area on Machine Learning and Data Science jobs since then.

    The instruction team was solid, and I felt that the courses were curated timely and appropriately. Besides solid classes in statistics, programming, and other essential data skills, what I find unique is the career perspective it offered. The tech industry tends to overwhelm its participants and sp...

    The Perspective of an NYU Undergraduate

    Kaiser is bright and lively. His teaching is hands-on, and the instructors he finds are respectable, very smart, and diverse.

    This course gave me real business world insights, especially compared to college courses.

    Furthermore, the students, both young and old, are a valuable resource in itself- providing a diversity of connections and thought. 

    The classes are small and engaging, which offers personal assistance. So, regarding programming, I did learn a lot, and i...

    PAP program does not only care about teaching an...
