IPC to provide taste of analytics practice for graduate students

The INFORMS Professional Colloquium (IPC), to be held Sunday, April 2, during the INFORMS Conference on Business Analytics & Operations Research in Las Vegas, will provide real-world career guidance for a select group of practice-oriented graduate students. During the all-day IPC, the students will receive career advice from veteran practitioners through presentations, a case study and a panelist discussion. For the second year running, each IPC participant will be paired with an experienced mentor who will provide guidance during the conference and thereafter.
