About Us

Georgia State’s Institute for Insight is a collaborative community of graduate students, faculty members, researchers, entrepreneurs and industry partners, all focused on preparing students to walk confidently into the fast-changing world of big data analytics.

We are committed to preparing students for careers in big data for any business, and our record speaks for itself.

All 19 students who participated in the institute program in the spring 2015 secured full-time employment or an internship.

The institute is led by academic director Sanjay Srivastava and professional director Harold Ball and is supported by faculty advisors Dr. Mohammad Javad Feizollahi and Dr. Peter Molnar, along with Laura Garcia, associate director of Integrated Graduate Student Services for modeling, and Danielle Wilcox, business manager. Completing our community is our research team – our students.
