I had a nice lunch with Prof. Dr Bart Baesens today at the MIM to discuss his recent book ‘Analytics in a Big Data World: The Essential Guide to Data Science and its Applications’
One topic we discussed was knowledge transfer and certification.
Next to the recorded presentations already available on, the professor told me that his new course about Credit Risk Analytics would soon be released. Here is for you, in avant première, the content of this course that he has put together with SAS. This course will be available mid November 2014.
