Center for Business Analytics

Inform and improve decisions with analytics

The UC Center for Business Analytics brings business organizations together with a world-class, multidisciplinary group of faculty and students, to educate and exchange ideas and best practices on how to apply analytical methods for enhancing business and organizational performance.

Through the sponsorship of visiting scholars and executives in residence, the center aspires to be the world-renowned venue for the exchange of ideas on the most critical problems facing organizations, and how to best apply analytics to help solve these problems.

In collaboration with its corporate sponsors, the center accomplishes this through symposia, student projects, community training and applied research focused on the use of techniques such as data visualization, data mining, predictive modeling, simulation and optimization to solve important problems faced by businesses, government and non-profit organizations.

Center goals

Education

Through executive education events, seminars, non-credit short courses, the center expands awareness, educates on potential possibilities and deepens expertise in the use of analytical methods across a broad spectrum of problems.

Investigation

As organizations are able to collect massive amounts of data more than ever before, the center engages faculty and students to develop new methods and apply existing techniques to use this data to solve current and emerging organizational problems.

Integration

The center serves as an integration hub for applied analytics efforts, bringing together the expertise and experience of UC’s diverse educational and industry experiences to bear on important, challenging business problems.

Promotion

The center seeks to disseminate and advocate for the broader use of these methods.

Upcoming events

Our next event is the Data Science Symposium, October 12, 2018.
