With the widespread access of the internet and smartphones – and at increasingly lower costs – more and more people have been joining a global network of inter-connectivity, particularly via social media channels. Case in point, active social media use is now measured at above 3 billion users, which amounts to at least 40% of the global population!
We live in an era where data is being generated exponentially as never before. This, in turn, grants us unprecedented access into the minds of every individual using these channels: their likes, dislikes, interests, routines, etc. The inherent value in this information lies in that it essentially can be interpreted as the voice of the global crowd, and therefore, a proxy for understanding the voice of the market. Hence, the value for governments, institutions, and corporations that can be derived from social media is incalculable, and they are actively searching for the people who can lead these efforts for them.
The demand for data scientists has been steadily increasing over the years, and it is expected that by 2018 there will approximately 1 million new data science roles that will have to be filled. In the case of social media analysts as data scientists, since the role is more or less being created as we speak, early candidates prepared for its requirements will undoubtedly benefit from a supply-demand disparity. In other words, there is a huge shortage of qualified data scientists in the field in both the United States and Europe, which means attractive compensation packages for those who are ready to step up to the plate.
With content designed by senior industry professionals, our course includes the necessary training, simulations, and case studies to best prepare you for the career of the future with a complete hands-on learning experience.
The Social Media Analytics Boot Camp is the best place to continue developing your career!

You will learn about all the required elements necessary to perform successful, multi-industry Market Research via Social Media Analytics reports that capture all the nuances of the voice of the crowd to provide valuable recommendations and insights to decision-makers.
The course will teach you how to best search for data, how to filter it, learn about available tools and how to apply them for each different use case scenario, what type of analytics are currently possible, what methods are available for processing and storing data, understand features and pricing of available platforms and solutions providers for SMA in the market, what procurement process is needed to set up an internal SMA team for your organization, how to best present results and findings, recognize all necessary elements for a successful SMA report delivery, and many more…
All participants who sucessfully complete the Social Media Analytics BootCamp will receive a completion certificate recognized by the European Union. This is also known as a “engedelyezett kepzes” in Hungarian.
Do I need any programming experience (knowledge of Python) to attend?
No, this course is catered to entry level participants in the world of Data Science and/or Social Media Analytics. Nevertheless, if you wish to develop some statistical analysis skills on your own, Codecademy’s free Beginner Python course is a great option. There are many other similar free learning options out there in the internet!
Will I become a social media analytics expert by the end of this course?
Even though SMA is a nascent field, it still is quite intricate and developed. Becoming an expert in this industry requires many years of practice. Nevertheless, we firmly believe that successful course participants will be prepared to lead the full transformation/revolution of an SMA department, from the leadership, consulting, as well as procurement side, for any organization.
Should I bring a laptop with me?
Definitely! A functional, working laptop is essential to participating in this course, as access to social media analytics platforms, datasets, and e-learning materials will be given to each participant on their own device for learning and practical training purposes.
Both MS and Apple Operating Systems are acceptable.
Will you explain the math and statistics backgrounds of the methods?
In general, we will avoid detailed explanations and scientific equations during the lectures. We will focus on the practical applications of the algorithms but you are encouraged to go deep after the Bootcamp to learn more about regressions and classification.
