Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


The ability to collect digital records, analyze them and effectively communicate the findings is emerging as a key competency set for graduates of management programs and of other social science programs. This work-in-progress extended abstract describes a Delphi study of the competencies needed for effective data analytics. Fifty international experts will be invited to participate in the study and share their opinion regarding cognitive, intrapersonal and interpersonal competencies. The output collected will be analyzed using "Q methodology". The results of this study will serve us in developing a data-analytics student lab that will support the development of these competencies and improve student readiness for the future labor market.
