What to Expect From the Meeting
The Meeting of Analytics Program Directors (MAPD) is designed to provide the program directors of analytics programs with a forum for discussion, networking, and the sharing of best practices. While master’s level programs are the majority, this meeting is open to program directors representing bachelor’s and doctoral level programs as well. The goal is to provide a platform for the types of exchanges that will raise the bar for all analytics programs and ultimately lead to better outcomes for students and the industries they serve. Additionally, by supporting this emerging cadre of academics who lead analytics programs, INFORMS hopes that this meeting will help foster new ideas and new energy going forward.
While the MAPD will take place prior to the 2018 INFORMS Business Analytics Conference, attendees will NOT be required to attend the Analytics Conference. However, with leading analytics professionals and industry experts coming together to share, learn, and network, the 2018 INFORMS Business Analytics Conference is an attractive option for anyone engaged in the business analytics arena.
