400 Hour DMAIPH Data Science & Analytics OJT/Internship Program
The end goal is to develop a DSA strategy presentation for manager. Start out by getting to know the physical data environment, the tools being used and the main players in the business. Move on to assessing the maturity of the analytics culture and it’s use of DSA talent, techniques and technology. Design a business dashboard prototype and deliver a compelling data story to improve management reporting.
Three tracts for interns… HR Analyst, Business Analyst and Data Analyst.
Interns will spend 60% of the internship at the place of business and 40% of the internship in a classroom. This will facilitate the application of theory to real business data in order to help managers get a better idea of the what’s working and what’s nor when it comes to the data in their business.

My goal is to create and promote a hybrid approach that offers both supplemental education and hands on experience. We need to get past the days of having OJT do data encoding or simple research projects… they need skills that they can apply day one.
They need it, we need it, the country needs it.
Any ideas or suggestions? This is just the first draft.
Hoping to roll this out in the next month or so.
