Program Description

Master of Data Science and Innovation

University of Technology Sydney

This course has been developed as a response to a global talent gap for people with data science knowledge, as identified and reported by the McKinsey Global Institute study (2011). The study predicted a shortfall by 2018 of nearly 200,000 data scientists and 1.5 million managers with the capability to make decisions using big data in the United States alone. The dramatic growth of data in every conceivable industry, from oceanography to market research, presents another major driving force in generating unprecedented global demand for data science skills.

The course prepares students to participate in a variety of emerging careers with the growth of data science – data griot, data analyst, data artist, data journalist, mobile behaviour analyst, data-driven policy expert, advertising insight and online community manager, to name a few. While other offerings also provide the basis for these careers, this course provides an additional level of expertise, targeting professionals who have the desire to lead teams and organisations at the chief executive level.

This school offers programs in:
