As technology continues to transform current jobs and create new jobs, there is one industry that is taking center stage in this new world of work: data science.

By 2020, the demand for Data Science and Analytic (DSA) jobs is projected to grow 15%*, with the fastest-growing roles of Data Scientists and Advanced Analysts projected to see demand spike by 28%. Currently, only six of the U.S. News & World Report‘s Top 100 Global Universities offer undergraduate degrees in data science.

Join us February 26 at the University of Pennsylvania for The Future Is Now: Closing the Data Analytics Skills Gap. Tech leaders and execs from LinkedIn, Morgan Stanley, The Gates Foundation, and our very own CEO Jake Schwartz will discuss how businesses and education systems are confronting the huge demand for data skills—and preparing students for the changing landscape.
