Data Column is a collaborative blog written by students in the Master of Science in Analytics (MSA) degree program. Started for the class of 2016 by Dr. Sarah Egan Warren, the blog’s purpose is to share thoughts and experiences about what it is like to be at the Institute, lessons learned, and topics important to the field of analytics. ┬áStudents work with Dr. Sarah Egan Warren and her graduate teaching assistants to prepare articles for publication. Join us as we share our 10-month journey in the MSA program and explore the exciting field of data analytics.

Columnists contribute their own opinions and experiences. Ideas, concepts, topics, and opinions are solely that of the individual columnist and do not necessarily reflect the views or opinions of the Institute for Advanced Analytics and/or NC State University.
