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. Knowledge of data science and analytics in recent years has become as fundamental as any other skill for graduates' career readiness, and the Applied Data Science minor at Case Western Reserve University serves as a national model for undergraduate education in data science.
