Interview with Gloria Macias-Lizaso, McKinsey’s partner in charge of Data Science & Business Analytics

Gloria Macias-Lizaso, McKinsey’s partner in charge of Data Science in Spain, talked with me about Data Science & Business Analytics, how McKinsey sees the sector in Europe and what could be its evolution in the near future.

We also discussed on the qualities that make candidates more fit for a Data Science or Business Analytics position. What are companies looking for? There you will hear about a new concept, the one of translators, professionals that bridge between business and tech, trying to make tech relevant and understandable for organizations.

Watch the interview on this video.

In such a changing world, it is difficult to find anybody that is equally good in both tech and business. In fact, for many of us it is difficult to keep up with the fast pace of the area. Having people that know how to best apply tech to business and apply it in an effective way is rare.

This is the kind of people that we aim to train @ ESADE in our new programme, the MIBA – Master in Business Analytics. If you are interested, please contact us!

    If anybody knows about data science it has to be Gloria, she is the best at what she does. This interview was definitely eye opening and shed a lot of light on topics that aren’t really covered in depth. This woman is doing great things and I wish her nothing but the best. :)
