BPI Data Science Fellowship

The BPI Data Science Fellowship is a fully-sponsored, project-based, and intensive learning program designed to prepare individuals to succeed in financial data science with the Bank of the Philippine Islands. 

The curriculum emphasizes practical experience and exposure, with learners working on four different data science projects with expert mentors and presenting them to industry experts.

The program starts with fundamental skills such as data preprocessing and exploratory data analysis, and then progresses to advanced skills such as developing predictive models for time series analysis and forecasting. Participants will also learn to create interpretable machine learning models for business purposes and develop their data visualization and presentation skills using generative AI. 

The fellowship is suitable for fresh graduates, career changers, job seekers, and aspiring data scientists who want to upskill and potentially work at BPI. Classes will be fully online, with occasional on-site activities in Makati.
