The Center for Customer Insights at the Yale School of Management is working with IBM on a new course that will provide students with hands-on analytics education. Students will work with real big data sets from companies and learn to use professional analytics tools that are in demand today. IBM Business Analytics posted a YouTube video about the course.
"It's more than statistics," says Sharon Oster, dean of the Yale School of Management. "When you have a plethora of data it means you have to think a little more strategically upfront about what you do with the data."
As we've covered before, business intelligence professionals and data geeks of all types are in high demand. And that demand is only going to grow as enterprises deal with the explosion of social data being delivered by social media analytics services.
