The Accenture and MIT Alliance in Business Analytics is a collaboration to conduct research and develop new business analytics solutions to help organizations make more informed decisions, solving some of the most challenging problems faced by today's global companies.
The alliance also brings together the top analytics minds in business with subject matter experts at MIT and Accenture to form the Analytics Innovation Consortium—an exclusive network of chief analytics officers and their executive equivalents from around the world.
Members of the consortium have the unique opportunity to shape future alliance research projects, discuss emerging trends in analytics, operations research and big data and collaborate with an international network of peers. They represent such industries as oil & gas, consumer goods, banking, insurance, pharmaceuticals and communications.
