Preparing the Mind Behind the Math

At the center of the big data discussion is the question of, “What now?” And quickly following that is, “How?” What can be done with it? How can we see what’s needed? How do we interpret this? How do we extract only the data that’s needed?” George Mason prepares the next generation of data experts to deliver a process that transforms raw data, places it into a decision-making context, and leverages technology to produce evidence-based strategies and smart systems.
