Deloitte will collaborate with The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania to provide students with analytics courses in addition to existing research programs at the institute.
Deloitte Analytics intends to work with Wharton's customer analytics initiative to host student and alumni events, organize panel discussions and join forums with other sponsors, Deloitte said Wednesday.
Forrest Danson, Deloitte Consulting LLP principal and U.S. Deloitte Analytics lead, said the partnership is intended to train students on analytics methods and help them grow as professionals in the field.
“Today’s businesses are faced with an enormous amount of data, but often lack well trained individuals who can sift through all that data to find the most important insights for the organization,” he said.
WCAI aims to develop and implement customer analytic methods.
