FICO Fosters a New Generation of Business Leaders Fluent in the Language of Analytics

19 de maio de 2015

San Diego State MBA students to present their real-world analytics projects built with FICO Decision Management Tools

SAN DIEGO – May 19, 2015 - FICO (NYSE: FICO), the predictive analytics and decision management software company, today announced that it is fostering a new generation of business leaders through its Academic Engagement program. The first class participating in the new program are MBA students from San Diego State University.  The students will be onsite today at FICO’s San Diego campus to present their final applied analytics projects.

The students participated in a semester-long program where they used FICO's analytic development tools for experimentation and exploration. Each cross-functional team of students worked together while taking on a real business problem, with real business data, to get real business insights and results. The student teams developed projects around two use cases, one for a multi-channel retailer determining the effectiveness of its marketing offers, and one for a home equity lender weighing credit risk with potential profitability for its consumer credit products. FICO also provided the students with training sessions and support, including a community portal and virtual office hours with a FICO expert.   Participating students accessed all of the required software, data, training, and other support assets through the FICO® Analytic Cloud

"We believe that you shouldn't need to be a data scientist to develop and use analytics," said Doug Clare, vice president of product management at FICO. "Our goal is to make analytics accessible, understandable and useful to everyone. Through this program, we’re helping ensure that the next generation of business leaders is fluent with fundamental analytics concepts, tools, and business applications."

Based upon the initial success of FICO's Academic Engagement program at San Diego State University, FICO now plans to expand the program to other colleges and universities this fall.
