Event: Guest Speaker-Intro to Business Analytics
Time: Wednesday February 19th 7:10 – 8 pm
Location: Olson 251
The concept of business analytics can date back to the late 19th century and was notably used by car manufacturer Henry Ford, who would measure the time it took to make each component on the assembly line in his factories.
Business analytics has developed vastly since then though, with the rise in computing power allowing for increasingly complicated analysis to take place. Now, business analytics is used in most of the world’s major companies and is particularly valuable in Silicon Valley, where tech start-ups are keen to exploit any data-driven advantages which will help them break into the mass market. Due to the rising demand for business analytics, more and more students want to it as their future career.
Our guest speaker Yu Chen, who is a senior researcher at Microsoft, will talk about what is business analytics, the skillsets, job opportunities, and provide advice for students who want to pursue this career in the future.
