This panel focuses on building academic partnerships and research collaborations between business schools and local businesses to support the business analytics (BA) programs. Besides providing real-world experiential learning opportunities for their students, a key challenge faced by public universities in particular is the decline of state funding, the rapid pace of change in the world around them, and increasing demands from different stakeholders. The goal of this panel is to discuss collaboration and partnership ideas at a strategic level and stimulate thinking on how business firms and higher education institutions can work together in new ways to enhance knowledge and skills in BA programs. The panelists are representatives of major Boston area companies which are collaborating the MS in Business Analytics program at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. They will explain their engagement with the program and how they are helping shape tomorrow’s workforce with collaborative research projects and their role as advisory board members.
