Charles Knode, PhD
Professor of Data Analytics
Most companies have traditionally been very application-based. Now it’s all about how you drive revenue and make better decisions based on data. That’s a big culture change, and you really have to be confident in what you’re doing because you’re changing an organization. A degree from UMUC, coupled with my experience, has instilled the confidence to be able to speak authoritatively on the subject.
