Data Analytics Addressing Social Impact
Marketing | Healthcare
A young boy in India dreaming about what he would be when he was older, Hari Sridhar, Ph.D., said he really only had three paths he could choose from. “I could be an engineer, a doctor, or a nobody… I chose engineer.”
Information and Operations Management | Healthcare
One of the biggest opportunities that our country’s healthcare system has is for the industry to run systematically. If you’ve ever had to leave a network, switch doctors, or wait for lab results to go from one provider to another, you know that there is room for improvement. Enter Arun Sen, Ph.D., Mays Business School professor and academic researcher in the area of healthcare delivery and operations.

Information and Operations Management | Retail
We’ve all been there. A lack of time results in a hurried trip through a department store. That hurried trip leads to an item that is the wrong size, color, fit, fill-in-the-blank, which inevitably leads to a return. Or perhaps it is a late-night online shopping spree. At midnight, those shoes were flawless but when they ship to you and you try them on, your toes disagree. Problems with products meeting consumers’ exact needs are seemingly endless. That endless problem is a $350B American problem and a $700B world-wide problem. The research of James Abbey, Ph.D., and Michael Ketzenberg, Ph.D., is transforming the way that business is conducted.
Management | CEOs
You only get one chance at a first impression. In fact, entire financial markets are driven by the impressions a CEO gives an investor. For any given firm, these impressions, or perceptions, directly influence stock volatility and its ability to create value.
Accounting | Stock Market Returns
For many in the population, the U.S. stock market might as well be in a different language. The ever-evolving intricacies and complexities found woven into Wall Street err more on the confusion side of things. Sometimes, even those fluent in stock language can get lost in translation.
Finance | Banking
The 2008-2009 financial crisis was a global event. The U.S. felt it heavily, but the world-at-large was impacted just as much. The truth of that painful matter is that regulators around the world are still worried about these failures. For this reason they started evaluating banks to see if they could survive another bad crisis in the future. These so-called “stress tests” are now publicly disclosed for all major banks in the world. James Kolari, Ph.D., and a handful of other leading financial minds, are studying why some banks pass the stress tests and some fail these tests.
An update from Arvind Mahajan, Ph.D. | Associate Dean for Graduate Programs
The mission of the MS Analytics program is to transform working professionals into leaders that can collaboratively solve business problems using modern techniques in analytics and communicate highly technical solutions in simpler terms while demonstrating social, cultural, and global competence. The acquisition of the MS Analytics program from the College of Science fills a critical gap in our offerings and provides Mays Business School with a very well-rounded portfolio of graduate programs. It also provides an opportunity for us to consider strategically adding electives to our Full-Time, Professional, and Executive MBA programs, exactly where corporations are most demanding expertise in the marketplace.
