Global IDEAS manages MSU's International Data Portal. This portal currently provides visualizations of or MSU's Externally Funded International Projects, International Student Enrollment, Education Abroad, International Agreements Data and International Research Collaboration.

Recent conversations with the data managers at MSU have shown a path forward that will allow for direct access and visualization of the data. This access will also allow the construction of personalized dashboards in Tableau for data analysis and display. In addition, there are many ways that MSU's international work can be analyzed and presented to decision-makers for more complete and thorough use of the data. Global IDEAS seeks a Data Scientist to lead this work and deepen and broaden the collaborations with decision-makers and other Data Scientists across MSU to provide timely analysis and insights.
