Big Data's big issue: Where are all the data scientists coming from?

Data Science at Dundee

The Data Science course begins for the first time in January. An announcement from the University contains the same information as this article:

http://www.computing.dundee.ac.uk/study/postgrad/degreedetails.asp?17

The page explains that "there will be significant overlap between the BI [Business Intelligence] and DS courses".

Dundee has offered the Business Intelligence masters for three years now. A summary of the BI syllabus is available here:

I would guess that the Data Science course would focus more on algorithms and presentation, whereas the Business Intelligence course would focus more on design and implementation.
