Center for Business Analytics

More than ever before, organizations are collecting massive amounts of data in an ever-increasingly complex decision-making environment. Analytics is a key capability needed to unlock the value in that data to generate insights and make better decisions—from top line growth to bottom line cost savings to improvements in medicine and community well-being. UC’s Center for Business Analytics is here to serve organizations— locally and nationally—to be best-in-class in analytics.


HOW WE SERVE OUR MEMBERS AND THE COMMUNITY


Leadership Development

Representatives of Member organizations participate in forums facilitated by the Center to increase their understanding of current analytic trends, develop talent and drive organizational success.

Public Events

The Center promotes the awareness of analytic methods and their effective application within corporate, small business, public sector, and academic communities by hosting several events each year including the Analytics Summit and Data Science Symposium.  These events, which draw hundreds of participants and internationally recognized speakers, also facilitate active networking for attendees.

Professional Analytics Training

The Center offers non-credit short courses to the public on current analytic techniques, taught by recognized experts in their respective fields. Courses on Data Visualization, Tableau, MS Power BI, Python, R, Analytics with Excel, Data Management and SQL are offered regularly in modern education facilities. These courses help organizations upskill existing talent in a cost-effective and time-efficient manner.

Analytic Problem-Solving

A variety of options are available to organizations to utilize the Center to help analyze and solve their most important problems.  Professional project management, talented students and experienced academic experts converge to provide cost-effective solutions utilizing state-of-the-art analytics to increase organizational value.

Student Engagement

The Center helps facilitate identification of the best candidates from UC’s award-winning analytics programs for an organization’s recruiting pipeline. The Center can help organizations identify talent through Center projects and company information sessions with targeted student audiences for both internship and full-time employment opportunities.
