Marketing Education/ The Dynamic Business School
Universities are charged with equipping the next generation of graduates with the skills and knowledge to benefit both the businesses they will work in. Analytics are the skills needed by both for profit and non-profit operating businesses. For example, in August of 2013, Forbes printed a post on the Forbes Insights blog by Daniel Keherer titled ‘Analysis Shows Jump in Marketing Analytics Jobs.’ The Definitive Guide to Marketing Metrics and Analytics (Dholakia, 2015) has been freely made available by Marketo. Harvard Business School Press has also published a book titled ‘Competing on Analytics: The New Science of Winning,’ by Harris and Davenport (2007). The question is, are our university graduates prepared for a world of analytics? This research shows universities need to have courses and faculty ready to develop the next generation of graduates who will have to deal with analytics in the workplace.
