Welcome to the Fall 2023 Business Analytics Forum, presented by the Business Analytics & Statistics Department in the Haslam College of Business. At this forum, you will explore business analytics opportunities and challenges with industry professionals, business analytics faculty who are at the forefront of the discipline, and talented students who are eager to engage with and learn from leaders in their chosen field.

The topics we discuss at our forum are inspired by feedback from corporate partners. The program reflects the industry’s most current issues and the latest possibilities for business analytics applications. You will leave the forum with insights immediately applicable at your organization.
