With the theme “Bridging the Industry-Academe Analytics Gap through the APEC Data Science and Analytics Competencies”, the conference aims to help academic institutions craft and deliver Analytics programs that are relevant, applied and experience-building for the students and to help the industry gain access to graduates ready for analytics jobs.
One of the highlights of the event is the dialogue between the industry and the academe where we will work to bridge the gap between the current syllabi and the Recommended APEC Data Science and Analytics Competencies developed through Project DARE (Data Analytics Raising Employment), an initiative led by the United States Department of Labor under APEC’s Human Resources Development Working Group and endorsed by the APEC Business Advisory Council.

Why Focus on APEC’s Data Science and Analytics Competencies?

Jobs requiring a familiarity with data analysis are forecasted to dramatically rise, resulting in a massive shortage of qualified employees. According to reports, some economies face a shortage of up to 1.5 million data analytics-enabled managers and analysts, costing billions of dollars in lost revenue annually. There is an urgent need to ensure that the future workforce is equipped with data analytics competencies to secure the jobs of tomorrow and move with ease in the labor market.

This is where Project DARE comes in. Project DARE aims to facilitate development of a data analytics-enabled workforce across the APEC region to effectively support sustainable economic growth and prosperity in the Asia-Pacific region. To do so, Project DARE developed a set of Recommended APEC Data Analytics Competencies which will be a resource to academic institutions and governments to align curricula, courses and programs so APEC economies are equipped to educate its workforce with the data analytics skills needed by employers in a data-driven future.

 

How was the Recommended Data Analytics Competencies Developed?

​The Recommended APEC Data Analytics Competencies was developed through a public-private partnership with input from over 40 Advisory Group members comprised of distinguished business and higher education leaders who oversee data science and analytics needs for their organization and data science inter-disciplinary initiatives and curriculum. The Advisory Group was led by the private sector partner co- chairs, global skills and knowledge company Wiley and the Business Higher Education Forum (BHEF), with technical support by the EDISON (Education for Data Intensive Science to Open New Science Frontiers) Project and AAP’s Founding Members, Mr. Karlo Panti, Dr. Brenda Quismorio, Mr. Sherwin Pelayo, Mr. Dan Meyer and Dr. Eugene Rex Jalao.
