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.
But how do we turn data into insight? And how do we do it while maintaining ethics? The challenges exist, but we are ready to work through them. 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.
