About the Data Science Initiative

Data is everywhere. It impacts decisions in businesses, healthcare and society significantly, and it's only going to get bigger. This also means more demand for experts in the field.

Through our interdisciplinary data science and analytics programs, Marquette prepares students for careers focused on data. In addition to our graduate and undergraduate program offerings, we are growing our partnership with businesses on research and staff development.
