Active participation in CBA events – attending our events, serving as guest lectures, and providing recommendations for our many talented professional speakers;

Encourage graduate and undergraduate students to attend CBA events – giving students practical academic context and driving awareness in Analytics opportunities;

Conduct analytics research sponsored by the CBA and presenting their findings at key academic and industry conferences;

Act as technical advisors for Business Analytics consulting projects – for students across graduate and undergraduate courses and liaising with corporate partners to bring case examples to VSB.
