Hack/Reduce made its debut at Bentley University this week. Cort Johnson and Shanan Kumar were invited to campus to talk about the mission of Hack/Reduce, Big Data community in Boston area and the campus ambassador program details.
GITMA, which is the student organization responsible for holding this event, brought out about thirty people from the McCallum Graduate School of Business at Bentley. They come from graduate programs such as Information Technology, Marketing Analytics, Business Analytics and MBA.
The purpose of the event was to share with the students the opportunities available to them in the broader Boston, Big Data, ecosystem. We were able to explore different resources available to the students to learn more about getting involved, finding jobs, and getting off campus and building our networks.
We're looking forward to the next event coming after winter break!
