The Nano MBA in Coding and computer science is a intensive introduction to the enterprise of computer science through the lens of programming in Python. In addition to the overarching themes of abstraction and algorithmic thinking, students will learn fundamental building blocks of procedural programming including variables, conditions, loops, functions, and file input/output.
By the end of this course, you will be able to further study all that can be accomplished with Python or bootstrap yourself into learning another language; empowering you to become a life-long student of computer science!
Our curriculum, designed by Harvard students concentrating in computer science, is geared towards teaching new leaders of the 21st century the fundamentals of coding.
The New Leaders training program also includes BBI of Chicago’s best selling online course: Power BI for Data Analysis.
