But Do Teach Communication and Business Skills
I agree with most of the points here, but I believe that analytics and data-science degree programs should include the basics of communicating with the business side, defining business needs and putting data science to work in the context of business applications. Likewise, I would think business schools would want to teach the basics of data analysis and data science so they can work more effectively with the deeper subject matter experts.

Maybe what I'm talking about can be achieved by making Business 101 a requirement for analytic grads and and Analytics 101 a requirement for Business grads. But I'm thinking there's more to it and you would want to give each of those groups the skills they need from the other discipline in the context of their own course of study.
