Room Zoom

TSE Campus talk


In an age where decisions are driven by data, businesses across the world are having to adapt to a rapidly expanding digital landscape. The buzz words in the industry are "Data Science" and "Machine Learning". Therein lies a unique opportunity for Economists to bridge the gap between business and science, where we are trained not only in the science of data but also have a keen understanding of the micro-dynamics between firms, consumers, and markets. In this talk I will use my experience at Amazon as an Economist to explore the skill sets that give us a unique advantage in the tech world.
