Brown University’s Executive MBA program offers a unique course titled “Data for Good”, led by Professor Adam Braff, an experienced data analyst. This course is designed to equip students with the skills to use data for positive societal change. The curriculum focuses on teaching students how to select a topic related to social good, define specific problems, generate hypotheses, gather data, and analyze it to make actionable recommendations. Adam has reached out to The Bright Initiative and together, they have created an interactive tailor made online data skills set workshop. The session provided hands-on experience in data collection and analysis using Bright Data’s state-of-the-art tools.
The collaboration with The Bright Initiative and the subsequent Data Skill Set Session provided students with a practical approach. Combined with the use of Bright Data’s platform, the workshop has enriched the students’ learning experience, enabling them to apply theoretical knowledge to real-world scenarios. As a result, students are better prepared to leverage data for the betterment of society, making informed decisions and recommendations in their future roles as business leaders. The session also highlighted the potential of data-driven solutions in addressing societal challenges, emphasizing the importance of data fluency for modern business leaders.
