Putting Data to Work for Your Business

UVA Darden Executive Education and UVA Data Science have partnered to launch a new program series in Rosslyn, Virginia. Designed to foster data-savvy organizations, pilot sessions will start Summer 2020.

With the ever-increasing amount of data available in the world, there is endless opportunity to capture, analyze, and leverage that data to transform your business and the world. This new program series brings together award-winning experts from both Darden and UVA Data Science, the latest research and innovations, and proven success from recent data science programs at UVA to host three 2-day workshops that each focus on a fundamental area of data science:

  • Strategic Use of Data: Explores how insights that have been gained from data and analytics can help shape and guide organizations by helping them identify the questions they need to answer in order to make better decisions.
  • Data Science in Action: Provides real-world experience with the tools and technologies available to analyze and interpret data, to create the powerful insights businesses need to take action.
  • Building a Data Pipeline: Delves into the many sources of data, and how to collect, store, and combine data for current and future needs. 

UVA brings a unique set of perspectives on data science in business, through its top-ranked Darden School of Business and innovative new School of Data Science. Thought leaders from these two schools are recognized as experts in data science techniques and tools, and the application of those in the modern business context. Together, Darden and UVA Data Science faculty are uniquely positioned to address the specific data and analytical opportunities faced by individual business leaders, and the organizational enablers needed for data science to become a core part of company culture and competitive advantage.

The program series is designed for both business professionals who are looking to increase their knowledge of data science and how it can help them in their current roles, and business leaders who are looking to create data-savvy teams and improve the performance of their departments and the company overall.

The data science series will launch with pilot program offerings, providing significant pricing discounts in exchange for feedback on each program, which will help us to refine and improve the programs for future sessions.
