Why Study Data Strategy?
Today’s businesses don’t just collect data – they are data. By capturing every interaction, businesses know who they are and what they do. Yet despite this wealth of information, many businesses fail to use it to their advantage. Data points should be assets, not opportunities lost.

In this course at MIT SA+P, the leader in how technology impacts people and society, data-minded professionals hone the strategic thinking needed to leverage a valuable asset for business success. Whether operationalizing analytics initiatives or utilizing machine learning capabilities, the course provides the foundational tools for implementing
AI initiatives with impact.
The course is led by Alex “Sandy” Pentland, one of the seven most powerful data scientists in the world (Forbes). In it, Prof. Pentland and his hand-picked team of guest speakers show you how to link advanced analytics to AI. You’ll design a road map for integrating AI into an organization and identify the resources necessary to execute your plan – and lead the future of business.
“How do data and digital interact with real life? In the next couple decades we’re going to see virtually everything augmented and processes reinvented to take advantage of new capabilities.”
Prof. Alex Pentland, Faculty Director,
MIT Institute for Data,
Systems & Society
