Abstract

The big data and analytics talent discussion has largely focused on a single role – the data scientist. However, the need is much broader than data scientists. Data has become a strategic business asset. Every professional occupation must adapt to this new mindset. Universities in partnership with industry must move quickly to ensure that the graduates they produce have the required skills for the age of big data. Existing curricula should be reviewed and adapted to ensure relevance. New curricula and degree programs are needed to meet the needs of industry.
