Program Experience

Successful organizations don’t simply manage data as a cost driver; they harness data as a value driver. If your team has less expertise in leveraging data than it does in accruing it, you’re not alone.

Our Data Strategy program presents practical, strategic advice and case studies so you can develop and implement a data strategy to deliver on your business objectives by leveraging data management, data governance, data technology, data analytics, and a data-driven culture.

This program is a practical how-to guide. It is built on industry best practices, academic research, and faculty experience building data strategy for organizations across industries. You’ll learn to apply frameworks and methodologies to create value from your data, and you’ll build a data-focused roadmap to gain a competitive advantage.
