Directors of academic analytics programs to meet in Las Vegas

What are your biggest challenges as the director of an university analytics program? Chances are you’re not alone, and many of your fellow program directors share the same challenges and more. Analytics program directors from across the country will gather in Las Vegas on April 1 for the inaugural Meeting of Analytics Program Directors (MAPD) sponsored by INFORMS.

The meeting is designed to provide a forum for discussion, networking and the sharing of best practices among academic analytics program directors. The goal is to provide a platform for the types of exchanges that will raise the bar for all analytics programs and ultimately lead to better outcomes for students. The meeting is free; to register click here.

The MAPD meeting will be held at Caesars Palace in conjunction with the 2017 INFORMS Conference on Business Analytics & O.R. Conference, an attractive option for anyone engaged in the business analytics arena.
