The Business Analytics Forum brings together business’s greatest analytical minds with its top-ranked faculty and students to derive new insights and find new applications for data.

Forum members inform the business analytics research focus at the Haslam College of Business and consult our faculty and one another on best practices. Through a yearly sponsorship, with three different levels of membership, our forum members help:

Solve Business Problems — Non-competing companies talk openly about their problems faced and solutions found, sharing case studies on challenges including maturity model assessments, data visualization and data governance.
Fill the Talent Gap — The forum connects companies with Haslam’s top-ranked students through receptions, job fairs, capstone projects, student presentations and case competitions.
Expand Their Analytics Knowledge — Members learn the best before the rest through presentations from well-known analytics professionals and access to groundbreaking research.
