Introduction

Data Science is a relatively new field that is revolutionizing the way organizations run their businesses. The speed at which data is being created is staggering and thus the need to properly interpret and analyze large data sets is becoming increasingly important.

The NYU Center for Data Science is a focal point for New York University’s university-wide initiative in data science and statistics. The Center was established to advance NYU’s goal of creating the country’s leading data science training and research facilities, and arming researchers and professionals with tools to harness the power of big data.

The Center’s faculty members and scientists are established experts in the field of data science. Their research interests include mathematical statistics, computational statistics and machine learning, optimization and large-scale computation, system design for large-scale data science, data visualization and several application areas, such as artificial intelligence, computational biology, computational economics, or quantitative methods in social science. Because of the interdisciplinary nature of data science, the Center collaborates with many departments within NYU and is looking to develop a partnership program with a select group of corporations, non-profits, and government entities to further research and to produce the most well-trained cohort of Data Scientists possible.

We would like to invite you to join the Partners Program and help us achieve those goals together.

The Program

The Partners Program will provide the NYU Center for Data Science with additional resources for furthering our research, education, and training programs. Funds will be spent to help host professional development seminars, recruitment events, and tech talks with top researchers in the field. We will also be using the funds to sponsor scholarships that encourage diversity within the tech community. In return, our partners will receive a number of benefits:

Research Collaboration and Recruitment Pipeline
Partners will have an opportunity to participate and work with our faculty on their research while also receiving exclusive access to our student body for the purposes of hackathons, speaker presentations, internships, on-site interviews, and other recruitment-oriented activities. We will work closely with each of our Partners to ensure that they are meeting all of their recruitment needs and have ample opportunity to spend one-on-one time with our students. Our students have an employment rate of 100% and are some of the most sought after data scientists in the country and the world.

Resume Books
Our Partners will receive access to curated resume books targeting specific needs of each Partner.

Access to Research Results via Partners Only Website
Our Partners will have a private web portal where they can login and view the latest publications and research results from our faculty and students.

Capstone Project and Internships
Every Fall semester there will be a capstone project where graduating students will have the option to collaborate with a corporate partner to try and solve real world problems. Additionally, internships from partners will receive absolute priority and we will help market these opportunities to our students.

Community Events
Invitations to all retreats, conferences, and seminars that are hosted by the Center for Data Science for up to two representatives from each partner.

Custom hosted visits to the Center for Data Science for discussion of research topics and hosted speaker series along with networking events with our world class researchers.

If you are interested in joining the Center for Data Science and becoming one of our partners, please reach out to andres.borray@nyu.edu for more information. We look forward to collaborating with you!
