Big Data Analytics for Executives
Big data analytics can transform organizational performance.
Fordham faculty, director RP Raghupathi from the Center for Digital Transformation, will introduce the core concepts of big data analytics and related technologies. Participants will become familiar with distributed, cloud-based approaches to handling big data sets—superior techniques to traditional relational models.
The faculty will use hands-on exercises in big data analytics on several platforms—including AWS, Cloudera and IBM BigInsights—and offer concrete, applicable information about:
- The Hadoop platform, including the Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) and MapReduce (M/R) framework
- Big data analytics life cycle, technologies, development and management
- Privacy and security
Lecture Series Webcasts
36 individual Webcasts. The Center for Asian Business in the College of Business Administration at Loyola Marymount University has received a major grant over a three year period from the International Communications Foundation in Seoul, Korea, to provide a lecture series and entertainment media screenings for the LMU community—students, faculty, staff and neighbors. The International Communication Foundation was founded in 1982 by Young Bin Min, chairman of YBM/Si-sa, a Seoul-based corporation. The foundation's mission is to increase awareness and promote the status of Korean culture worldwide.
The purpose for the series of monthly events is to provide opportunities for LMU students to gain a deeper understanding of East Asian countries in context, and eventually to be better equipped to work in this competitive global marketplace after they enter the workforce. America is no longer the sole superpower in today’s global society. Unfortunately, however, foreigners know more about us than we do about them. As LMU is a major university located on the Pacific Rim in one of the world’s most culturally diverse cities, and located in the world capital of the entertainment media, the Center for Asian Business seeks to help the LMU community fill the gap. We are deeply grateful that the ICF grant will allow us to provide these special events.
