Connecting Students With Industry

By Editorial Staff

An experiential-learning event gave students of Intro to Applied Data Analytics the chance to present their dashboards to a jury from leading companies. Unilever, BMB Smart, Matrix and CME offered winners of the Data Visualization Competition internships and CIATEK gave a $1,000 prize. The competition, held by AKSOB’s Department of Information Technology and Operations Management along with LAU’s Academy of Continuing Education addressed UN SDGs 4,8,11 and 17. Similar events will continue, said Dr. Manal Yunis, ITOM chair.
