To meet the explosive demand for new careers in data -- including data scientists and Chief Data Officers -- IBM is collaborating with universities and business schools to reshape the way that traditional curricula is delivered to students.
How big is the demand? Consider that 4.4 million jobs are anticipated worldwide by 2015.
IBM is helping to ensure the explosive demand for data scientists is met by partnering with 28 different Business Schools and Universities around the country. Working with IBM, these 28 business schools and universities will join the more than 1,000 institutions that already have access to the latest Big Data and Analytics-focused technology innovations, hardware, curricula material, project-focused case studies, guest lecturers, and faculty awards to help accelerate curricula development.
