Institute Highlighted by Accenture

A newly published study by Accenture highlights the Institute for Advanced Analytics as one example of what is being done to address the growing mismatch between labor markets and needs of employers for skilled professionals in areas like analytics. The authors state:

“Clearly, these new types of programs and courses of study are only making small dents in the talent-supply problem so far. Over time, however, such innovations could do much more to fill the global need for STEM graduates who are also ready to step into business roles.” (Page 6)
