On Thursday, January 10th at 18:00, Anglo-American University’s School of Business Administration and Chapman University’s Argyros School of Business and Economics invite all who are interested in the topic “What Color is your Analytical Toolkit? How you can Capitalize on the Era of Analytics.” for the next MBA Open lecture. The lecture will be hosted by no one else other than our Chapman MBA lecturer and Associate Professor, Argyros School of Business and Economics, Ken Murphy, PhD.


Machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) attract media attention almost every day.  Automated decision-making, supported by data and models, is already causing market disruption and changing jobs.  What does this mean for business and society?  More importantly, how will these technologies affect us individually, as the employee and the citizen?  How can we take advantage of these new technologies in our profession?  This interactive discussion will explore where things currently stand, and how we can take advantage of new opportunities in the era of analytics.
