Industry Engagement

Our active partnerships with business and industry ensure that the flow of knowledge remains current and relevant by bringing real-world experience and research-based knowledge into the classroom.

The Business Analytics Initiative

The Business Analytics Initiative (BAI), housed in the Poole College of Management at NC State University, serves as a hub for data analysis in business through education, research and thought leadership. The Initiative educates future business leaders who know how and why to use analytics to make business decisions – while also providing
applied education, advancing world-class research and delivering global thought leadership in business analytics.


“We look forward to a long-term, collaborative and impactful partnership with NC State’s Business Analytics Initiative to rapidly and purposefully advance our understanding of disease, treatment and prevention as a keystone in our efforts to improve the health and well-being of people around the world.”
