What do Snapchat and Walmart have in common? Their use of data and analytics. Chances are, a person applying for a job at all of them is applying for the hottest job of the century – data science. Despite its formal name, Gen Z-ers are practicing data science at basic level without even realizing it.

After attending this short interactive lecture with iSchool Professor Jasmina Tacheva, you will be able to explain how facial recognition works, learn ways to optimize your social media presence, and most importantly, find out how a degree from the iSchool can open the doors of the coolest companies.

We encourage you to enable audio and video for the full classroom experience.
