Business Analytics & Data Science
According to a recent Wall Street Journal, companies, barraged with data from the Web and other sources, want employees who can both sift through the information and help solve business problems. As the use of analytics grows quickly, companies will need employees who understand the data.
A recent study by Edvancer & AIM reveals that number of analytics jobs doubled from April 2016 to April 2017. A May 2011 study from McKinsey & Co. found that by 2018, the U.S. will face a shortage of 1.5 million managers who can use data to shape business decisions.
