Kaplan, Inc. launched Metis in 2014 and has been awarded accreditation by the Accrediting Council for Continuing Education & Training (ACCET) for all Metis data science programming. ACCET has been recognized by the U.S. Department of Education since 1978. The rigorous standards prescribed by ACCET include demanding review and approval of the Metis curriculum, of instructional personnel, of instructional delivery, and of admissions and student services.
1 Net Promoter Score (NPS) is measured based on response to the question “How likely are you to recommend Metis to a friend or colleague?” The score can range from -100 to +100. An NPS that is positive (i.e., higher than zero) is felt to be good, and an NPS of +50 is excellent. The Metis NPS score was calculated on January 3, 2018 and is based on a survey sent immediately after graduation to all Metis bootcamp graduates. The response rate is 61%.
2 Metis holds a Career Day during the final week of its bootcamp. All companies attending are required to sign in. The number was calculated on January 3, 2018, based on attendance at 27 separate Data Science Career Days. Companies are counted for each time they attended, so repeaters are included. The number of individuals attending on behalf of a company does not factor into the calculation.
3 Data science courses includes bootcamps, part-time professional development courses, and corporate training. Courses must be at least 1 day in length to count. This number was calculated on January 3, 2018. The number consists of 27 bootcamps, 35 professional development courses and 26 corporate trainings.
4 Speakers are defined as someone presenting to Metis data science students, either exclusively for a class or as part of the Metis Data Science Meetup or Metis Data Science Slack Community. Speakers are only counted once, even if they have spoken at Metis on multiple occasions. Metis staff and speakers for Metis alumni panels are excluded. This number was calculated on January 3, 2018.
