Event Details

Georgetown's McDonough School of Business presents:

Big Data: Educating the Next Generation

 

Everyone is talking about Big Data, but there are questions about how schools should teach about Big Data.  This conference is designed to bring together faculty, students, and executives from the region to talk about the best ways to incorporate Big Data in the classroom.  By starting the conversation about industry trends, academic resources, and employment needs, we are one step closer to educating the generation of business professionals.

The conference will be held in the Fisher Colloquium of the Hariri Building, home of the McDonough School of Business, Georgetown University.  The event will open with a luncheon and keynote speech by technology visionary Vivek Kundra, the first Chief Information Officer (CIO) of the United States of America, followed by a panel discussion with leading academic and industry professionals interested in Big Data education.
