Andela and IBM Partnership to Train Data Scientists.

is excited to announce a partnership with Big Data University, an IBM initiative that aims to train 1 million data scientists around the world in the next 10 years.

According to a recent Glassdoor report, data science is the most lucrative career in tech. The median salary for a Data Scientist in the U.S. is a cushy $116,000, and there are over 1,700 open jobs. It makes total sense — as businesses of all kinds are overloaded by massive amounts of data, data scientists are essential to sift through the noise and uncover insights that power smart business decisions.

Through the official partnership, Andela is helping IBM tap into tech communities across Africa to recruit future data scientists on the continent.
