Want to understand the complexities of “Big Data” and how it can make a difference in your organization? As an aspiring leader in your organization, learn the definition of big data, discover the tools you need to understand and leverage large data sources, and find ways to unlock the power of big data to improve the performance of your organization.
Consider that on average, people send over 293 billion emails and complete over one billion online searches every day. Each email or online search creates a piece of data, which is collected and contributes to what is referred to as big data. The magnitude of big data is hard to comprehend, and organizations lag in both understanding the implications of big data for their company, and how to harness data to improve organizational performance.
Our Big Data track is built around nine core courses in leadership, strategy, and professional development. In addition to the core courses, three customized courses on big data are led by Wenbo Wu, Ph.D., a top instructor in this field.
Wu received his Ph.D. in Statistics from University of Georgia in 2015. His active research areas include high-dimensional data modeling and inference, dimension reduction, variable selection and causal inference. Wu also collaborates with researchers in other domains such as Finance, Marketing, Engineering, and Computer Science. Wu has established a good publication record in high-ranking journals and teaches both undergraduate and graduate level statistics and data analytics courses.
