UA&P is set to host this year’s “Industry-Academe Data Science & Analytics Conference” on April 18, Wednesday, 9AM – 5 PM. Spearheaded by the Analytics Association of the Philippines, and with the theme “Bridging the Industry-Academe Analytics Gap through the APEC Data Science and Analytics Competencies”, this conference aims to help academic institutions craft and deliver Business Analytics programs that are relevant, applied and experience-building for the students. The gathering also seeks to help the industry gain access to graduates ready for business analytics jobs.

One of the highlights of the event is the dialogue between the industry and the academe, in which the goal is to bridge the gap between the current syllabi and the Recommended APEC Data Science and Analytics Competencies developed through Project DARE (Data Analytics Raising Employment). Project DARE is an initiative led by the United States Department of Labor under APEC’s Human Resources Development Working Group, and is endorsed by the APEC Business Advisory Council.
