Abstract

This panel focuses on curriculum design and program development and sustainability for business and data analytics programs in higher education. It promotes a discussion in our IS community on the "how-to" questions concerning the various stages of program building and the challenges faced by institutions to construct successful and competitive analytics programs. Four panelists, who have demonstrated outstanding accomplishments in academic and industrial leadership, will share their experiences and vision of the "dream" analytics program. The panel hopes to stimulate a discussion that will engage and encourage the audience to reflect on their own opportunities and challenges of building new curricula in this area.
