Masters of Science in Data Science

The University of Minnesota is designing a new Masters of Science degree in Data Science to provide a strong foundation in the science of Big Data and its analysis. This will gather into a single program the knowledge, expertise, and educational assets in data collection and management, data analytics, scalable data-driven pattern discovery, and the fundamental concepts behind these methods.



We are a community organization of over 3700 members.  Our conferences typically bring in 500-700 people.  Our goal is to take the folks from Tech, Math, & Business and mix them all up and together we can all enjoy data analytics.


A GREAT opportunity to get your message in front of our well educated and well placed members.

Event sponsorships
Exclusive opportunity to sponsor a non-conference event.  Price can vary but will normally be between $800 & $1600.

Big Data MN - The Life Science Lean In

Data Science and Big Data in Life Sciences & Health Care.

Friday October 11th 2013,  Optum Corporate Conference Center, Eden Prairie, MN

Multiple tracks - 918 registrations & 189 waitlisted engaging participants.

A Threat to our use of Census Data - a message from Joan Naymark and MACS (Minnesotans for the American Community Survey)

How often are demographics used in your analytics and results?  Population change, income or educational attainment, age or ethnicity, neighborhood urbanicity or  psychographics -- let’s face it – analytics are built on good data.   Most of us focus on the attributes of markets and customers in our work at some point.
