SAN FRANCISCO, CA: According to a recent Mckinsey Global Institute study, and reported by USA Today, data analytics is “the next frontier for innovation, competition and productivity.” Data analysts are being called upon to glean information from the myriad of data being gathered, especially through social media. Due to the high degree of math skills required, including operations research, the supply of workers in the field lacks demand. According to the US Department of Labor, demand in the technology sector is expected to grow at a 19 percent rate through 2020.
