IDSS Strategic Partnerships
IDSS builds partnerships with organizations that share our vision of advancing research and education at the intersection of big data, complex systems, and societal impact. These partnerships can include industry, governments, NGOs, foundations, and non-profits.
Our three-year partnerships are anchored in either education or research.
Build a pipeline of data science talent.
Education partnerships support training in data science skills that can impact your bottom-line while adding incentives for both recruitment and retention.
Through education partnerships, IDSS dedicates teaching assistants to support learners through our in-depth MicroMasters Program in Statistics and Data Science, and our overview course Data Science and Big Data Analytics: Making Data Driven Decisions.
IDSS faculty members developed these modular, multidisciplinary online programs to meet the exploding demand for professionals skilled in data analytics and machine learning.
