Meat & Potatoes: Academic Vice President at BYU

In this episode, we talk with Shane Reese who is the Academic Vice President at BYU. We talk about data science and cybersecurity, which happen to be new majors offered at BYU. We talk about why BYU created these majors, the process to get them implemented, and why the market is demanding this type of education. We deviate to talking sports in relation to statistics and learn about Shane’s background in the field. Lastly, we chat about the importance of also factoring in your “gut” feeling on decisions even when the data shows a pretty clear answer.
