8:00am-5:00pm, AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center 1900 University Ave Austin, TX 78705
The 2016 UT Austin McCombs School of Business Workshop on Social and Business Analytics is a unique event that will bring together cutting edge researchers from top U.S. schools, industry experts, and successful entrepreneurs to present, discuss, and debate emerging themes, methods, and best practices in analytics. Topics will include (but are not limited to) healthcare analytics, driving efficiency in the energy sector with analytic modeling, analytics of internet of things (IoT), business metrics for unstructured, user-generated data, and consumer privacy and market for information in the era of big data. The uniqueness of this workshop lies at the intersection of academics and practice with a strong business application focus, but without trying to sell any vendor-specific software or technologies; in fact, several of the presenters are highly accomplished academics who have also created successful startups in the analytics space.

Participants will gain deep insights into the latest applications of business analytics in a variety of industries, learn novel ways of driving business value from new social media and user generated content metrics, understand the implications of IoT analytics, and also become aware of important consumer privacy issues emerging from the era of big data. Find more information and register today!

Our first workshop was attended by more than 200 participants, and we are expecting a strong turnout this year as well. We look forward to your participation!

Workshop Co-Chairs: Professors Anitesh Barua, Rajiv Garg, Sirkka Jarvenpaa, Maytal Saar-Tsechansky, Department of Information, Risk and Operations Management, McCombs School of Business, The University of Texas at Austin.

Noon-1:00pm, https://meeting.austin.utexas.edu/careerwebinar/
In addition to the recent designation as "America’s Next Boomtown" by Forbes Magazine, Austin is also the country’s most economically segregated city. Opportunity is geographically concentrated to the west and inequality is concentrated to the east. There is no more glaring evidence of this divide than the fact that only six percent of students who are low-income in Austin earn a college degree. This webinar will share what one McCombs alumnus is doing to close this gap and ensure that all students in Austin have the opportunity to earn a college degree. RSVP today!

As Executive Director of IDEA Public Schools in Austin, Larkin Tackett leads the organization’s schools and growth in the region. This includes managing and coaching principals at IDEA Allan as well as engaging community leaders, families, and key stakeholders in the region. He is focused on ensuring ambitious college ready results for all IDEA students in Austin. The first class of IDEA Allan’s sixth graders will graduate from college in 2023.
