SIU College of Business celebrates business analytics and artificial intelligence programming launch


In celebration of its newly-launched and highly-anticipated programs in business analytics and artificial intelligence, Southern Illinois University Carbondale's College of Business will host an evening reception for prospective students, business leaders and alumni on Wednesday, Nov. 13, in downtown Chicago. The event will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. on the 27th floor of the Deloitte building (Room 27E047), located at 111 S. Wacker Drive. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet faculty teaching these innovative courses, as well as analytics industry executives serving on the board of the university's one-of-a-kind Pontikes Center for Advanced Analytics and Artificial Intelligence. SIU recently launched an Analytics Concentration for its nationally-ranked online MBA program, a Bachelor of Science in Business Analytics, and will soon introduce a full graduate analytics program. All of these programs are uniquely designed to bridge the gap between data science and business by arming the managers and executives of tomorrow with leading-edge developments in artificial intelligence, prediction and data visualization, combined with a strong business foundation.
