Business Analytics Industry Outreach

According to a survey by Deloitte Singapore and the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) that assesses the state of analytics readiness at leading corporations in Singapore today, the higher the level of analytical sophistication in an organisation, the more the organisation is able to reap strong business benefits from their data.

SIM University (UniSIM) was represented by the School of Business (SBIZ) in the Deloitte-ACCA Survey: Enhancing Competitive Advantage through Analytical Insights through Dr Lee Yew Haur, Head of the Business Analytics programme, who participated in a panel discussion on the results. This event, held on 10 January 2014, was attended by Chief Financial Officers, Finance Managers and members of the Accounting profession.

During the session, Dr Lee called for organisations to move beyond reporting to using business analytics techniques to reap greater benefits. He also highlighted the calibre of UniSIM's Business Analytics graduates who could plug the analytical talent shortage. 

Since the event, several companies have approached SBIZ to collaborate on student projects, providing UniSIM students with more hands-on experience which they could then apply to their own work environment.
