Molluzzo, John C.; Lawler, James P.
Information Systems Education Journal, v13 n1 p45-57 Jan 2015
Big Data is becoming a critical component of the Information Systems curriculum. Educators are enhancing gradually the concentration curriculum for Big Data in schools of computer science and information systems. This paper proposes a creative curriculum design for Big Data Analytics for a program at a major metropolitan university. The design emphasizes expanded learning of business, mathematical and statistical, and presentation skills, in projects of teams, in addition to skills in technology. This paper will be beneficial to educators considering improvement of the curriculum for Big Data Analytics and to students desiring a more contemporary program.
