2016 Analytics Career Reception

Students networking with industry professionals

October 10, 2016

During the bustling week of Miami University's Career Fair, the Center of Analytics and Data Science hosted its first annual Analytics Career Reception. Over 100 students from across Miami University spent the evening networking with ten employers, including: IBM, Ernst & Young, Cardinal Health, Allstate, General Electric, Huntington Bank, Finit Solutions, Nielsen, 84.51, and Vantiv.

At this event, students discussed career opportunities in the fields of analytics and data science. The visiting employers, many of which are corporate partners of CADS, were also able to learn more about the analytics curriculum through the students' perspectives.

Allison Jones-Farmer, Director of the Center, said "The reception was a great way to bring together our high caliber analytics and data science students and top firms looking to hire in this area. It provided a targeted networking experience for students from across Miami University seeking careers in analytics and data science."

Junior finance and analytics co-major, Callie Zimmerman, was very excited that this will be an ongoing event, stating, "I'm so thankful for that opportunity to have a personalized career fair that aligned with my career goals." The next analytics career reception will be hosted in the fall of 2017.
