For folks who desire to have fun playing with data and develop both strong technical ability and skills to apply data science and analytic results to critical business issues.

A data scientist is somebody who can play with data, spot trends and learn truths few others know. Data scientists are inquisitive: exploring, asking questions, doing “what if” analysis, questioning existing assumptions and processes.

Data Science: the analysis of data creation. The data scientist has a solid foundation in computer science, modeling, statistics, analytics, math and strong business acumen, coupled with the ability to communicate findings to both business and IT leaders in a way that can influence how an organization approaches a business challenge.

Business Analytics: the practice of iterative, methodical exploration of an organization’s data with emphasis on statistical analysis.
