“Data scientist” has been dubbed “The Sexiest Job of the 21st Century” by Harvard Business Review. And according to Gartner, Inc., though 4.4. million IT jobs have been created globally to support big data between 2012 and 2015, there remains a shortage of skilled workers—only one-third of the jobs will be filled. To meet this need, Metropolitan College has introduced three new options for studying data analytics at the graduate level. They include:
- Data Analytics graduate certificate
- Data Analytics concentration, MS in Computer Information Systems
- Data Analytics concentration, MS in Computer Science
A basic understanding of business analytics is the gateway to advanced analytic studies, and to deep managerial insight. Pre-Analytics Laboratory (AD 100), a hands-on course offered by the Department of Administrative Sciences, immerses BU graduate students in an “interactive working environment’’—to get them ramped up for in-depth data analytics classes. All in seven weeks and for just $75. The inaugural session begins online March 24.
