The Open House Introducing the new Master of Science in Data Science degree has been changed to a VIRTUAL Open House.
Dubbed the “sexiest job of the 21st century” by Harvard Business Review, the Data Scientist is “a new key player in organizations. It’s a high-ranking professional with the training and curiosity to make discoveries in the world of big data. The title has been around for only a few years, but thousands of data scientists are already working at both start-ups and well-established companies. Their sudden appearance on the business scene reflects the fact that companies are now wrestling with information that comes in varieties and volumes never encountered before.”
Data Scientists are in high demand. HBR explains: “Much of the current enthusiasm for big data focuses on technologies that make taming it possible, including Hadoop (the most widely used framework for distributed file system processing) and related open-source tools, cloud computing, and data visualization. While those are important breakthroughs, at least as important are the people with the skill set (and the mind-set) to put them to good use. On this front, demand has raced ahead of supply. Indeed, the shortage of data scientists is becoming a serious constraint in some sectors.”
