A technology boom, a population boom, and billions of dollars of public and private investments - all happening at the same time. Whether it be in accounting, supply chain, marketing and human resources, organizations, both private and public, have been digitizing their data for several years. This significant growth in data has created opportunities to perform research that helps solve business challenges.

As organizations become increasingly reliant on data-driven processes, there is an emerging need for professionals who can solve complex business problems through the application of data-driven techniques.

On February 24, 2020, George Brown College’s Centre for Business will be hosting its first Business Analytics Symposium – An opportunity for organizations, professionals, and emerging leaders to learn, network, and engage in this emerging field. Morning refreshments and buffet lunch will be provided.
