Marquette Data Science Initiative

About the Data Science and Analytics 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? What about ethics? The challenges can seem daunting. Through our interdisciplinary data 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.
