Introduction of the Webinar
In 2012, Harvard Business Review declared data science â€œThe Sexiest Job of the 21st Centuryâ€ and categorized data scientists as professionals of scientific background with combined computational and analytical skills. They were expensive to hire and difficult to retain due to the competitive markets. Organizations, including LinkedIn, started to realize the value of data and the importance of harvesting and using them in policy and decision making. Thus, making data scientists became more sought after and lucrative positions.
Moving forward to 2020, Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) projected that Malaysia needs 20,000 data professionals, and 12,000 of them are needed between 2020 â€“ 2022 to spur Malaysiaâ€™s data-driven economy. Data Science is also ranked as number 1 in the top emerging in-demand skills in Malaysia. However, at this moment, Malaysia has an all-time high shortage of data science professionals, which may affect the growth of data-oriented businesses.
Due to this, the proposed webinar is to promote awareness of the importance of data science to SEGi students and the public. Tentatively entitled â€œWhy Data Science Is A Sexy Career?â€, the 1-hour webinar will try to explore data science, including the components of data science, requirements as a data scientist and its prospects.
The proposed webinarâ€™s main objective is to create awareness among audiences on the issue of data science and its prospects.
Audiences will also be exposed to:

requirements of becoming a data scientist
Prospects in the next 10-20 years.
