Students enrolled in the Krannert School of Management and this Data Mine cohort will develop their business acumen as well as the ability to make a strong case for actions based on data. Participants will learn to define business problems using data science tools, analyze data to identify alternative solutions and model the value of alternative business decisions and courses of action. Corporate partners who are current or target employers of Krannert students will provide students with data, coaching and instruction, project management support and work with and recruit students for internships and permanent employment.
