The UVA School of Data Science has a strong network of industry leaders who are eager to give back, which led to the creation of the Industry Advisor Network (IAN) in 2021. IAN is made up of alumni and industry leaders dedicated to supporting students' career journeys. IAN is currently comprised of 21 professionals in various data roles, working on (and often leading) teams from organizations such as Capital One, Databricks, Uber, Microsoft, StitchFix, Amazon, the U.S. Department of State, and more.
Industry advisors serve in a variety of ways, including one-on-one student advising meetings, career exploration panels, and career development workshops. With IAN only just beginning, we look forward to expanding the network and the scope of their involvement in the very near future.
MSDS students looking to get connected with IAN advisors can reach out to SDS Career Services.
