Diving Into Big Data and Everything Else Happening at B-Schools This Week


Each week, we round up the talks, conferences, information sessions, and alumni events at top business schools in the U.S. and around the world.

Business schools have started a string of master’s programs geared toward students who want to understand big data and analytics. That thirst will translate into the world of conferences and speakers on B-school campuses this week, with events at MIT’s Sloan School of Management and Cornell’s Johnson Graduate School of Management. Admissions offices will also head to South America to recruit prospective students and hold special events for veterans and women.
