  • Round 2: Analytics Education for Business Professionals

    Premium-Inhalt. My earlier post on this subject, noting the need for educating business professionals beyond IT, stimulated good reflections and comments. Since then, I became aware of a study (Sircar, Sumit (2009) "Business Intelligence in the Business Curriculum", Communications of the Association for Information Systems: Vol. 24, Article 17).

His research at that time showed few business schools with such an analytics curriculum. That finding is disappointing as measured against the large number of IT and business professionals who need to be trained. But there are encouraging signs of change, as I observed in a recent visit to a new center for customer analytics at Yale School of Management.
