    Dear Colleagues,

     

    First off, thanks to those among us who have responded to the survey below. This is truly a collective effort that will benefit all of us.

     

    The Analytics Disciplinary Task Force for an AACSB and PwC-sponsored initiative titled "Management Curriculum for the Digital Era" http://macude.org comprises about 50 business schools from around the world.

     

    It is tasked with understanding and offering recommendations for course offerings in in Analytics/Data Science tools and methods, and Operations/Supply Chain applications of analytics. The idea is to align contemporary perspectives from both academia and industry.

     

    If you teach a related course or course module, we kindly request you to fill out the following survey by May 31, 2020: https://gatech.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_bOTbF2oO28Lc1jT

     

    By taking less than 15 minutes to respond to this survey, you will play an important role in shaping the future of business education.

     

    All respondents are individually acknowledged in the Task Force's presentations/reports.

     

    Thank you!

     

    Sincerely,

    Ravi Subramanian

    (On behalf of the MaCuDE Analytics Task Force)

    Interesting idea. I'd not heard of MaCuDE. The http://macude.org/index.php/tf-analytics-data-science/ page is empty, and apparently you're trying to fill it.

    This is a huge challenge. My thoughts are that it'll require far deeper industry/academic interlock, ref https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/next-great-mba-school-ai-factory-rahul-saxena/.

    Rahul,

    I too had never heard of MaCuDE, despite being in a business school for the past 5 years.

    Ravi,

    I started to complete the survey but then stopped, as I had some questions about the intent and direction of this effort.  Who are the members of the Analytics Disciplinary Task Force that I can reach out to with questions?  Thank you.

    Rahul and Scott,

     

    The initiative kicked off just a few months ago with the disciplinary task forces being constituted. As such, the website http://macude.org/ is currently being built out with more information on task force membership. I am leading the Analytics Disciplinary Task Force.

     

    Apart from the information on the website and on the survey landing page, there is more information about the overall initiative here: https://bized.aacsb.edu/articles/2020/january/moving-toward-disruption

     

    Please email me separately if you have additional questions.


    Regards,

    Ravi
