Equipping Liberal Arts Students with Skills in Data Analytics

This case study examines how BHEF member Drake University, a private university with a strong liberal arts tradition, is equipping its students to become data-enabled professionals.
Through the collaboration of its business and higher education members, BHEF launched the National Higher Education and Workforce Initiative to create new undergraduate pathways in high-skill, high-demand fields such as data science and analytics. Data science and analytics must be integrated with T-shaped skills, such as critical thinking, collaboration, and effective communication, which are critical for all graduates entering the 21st century workforce.
