The Center for Analytics and Data Science is a university-wide initiative bringing together leadership from Miami’s Farmer School of Business, College of Arts and Science, College of Engineering and Computing, and others. It seeks to foster collaboration between students, faculty and staff from a wide variety of disciplines. As such, the Center offers space, resources and materials to faculty, students and staff to support research and teaching activities related to analytics and data science.

The Center provides an innovative environment where students and faculty can embrace the application of analytics and data science; engage in research that transforms the practice of analytics and data science; receive support in developing their skills; and find opportunities to elevate their understanding through research, coursework, collaboration and experiential learning.
