USC Viterbi Data Analytics Boot Camp
Hi MK, As we have not yet begun coursework for our inaugural cohort of students, we do not have data pertaining to the number of our students who follow the course to completion.

It is not intended to replace traditional college coursework, but rather to provide hands-on training in a valuable professional skill set.

Please feel free to reach out to me directly at (213) 814-0250 so that I can provide you with any and all assistance possible. - USC Data Analytics Boot Camp
