On December 6, 2021, Flatiron School was honored to exhibit at the The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) Annual Virtual Meeting

Speakers include: 

  • Rebekah Rombom, Chief Business Officer at Flatiron School 
  • Daniel Coleman, President of Birmingham Southern College 

In their discussion titled “How Birmingham Southern College Built a Data Science Program in 20 Weeks,”  Daniel Coleman discussed the College’s decision to launch a Data Science program in 2021 and the drivers behind choosing Flatiron School to support this program. 

The goal? To support the launch of a program that addresses the growing need of data science skills in the workforce with the intellectual rigor and context of a Birmingham-Southern liberal arts education.
