Event Details

The Third Annual OSU Business Analytics Symposium focuses on the ethics aspect of business analytics. Be inspired by keynote speaker Lutz Beck, and then continue your day "building your own symposium" by attending break-out sessions that are most relevant to you and your organizations needs.

Analytics gives organizations superpowers to understand customers, employees and business processes in a way that has never existed before. Now, with great power comes great responsibility. How should we manage the power that data gives to us?

Through sharing best practices, this symposium helps participants to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of their existing analytics solutions and to better plan their future analytics strategies.

As we get closer to the event, you’ll receive a symposium guide to help you customize your experience.
