It’s that time of year when high school seniors are in the midst of making their final decisions about where to go to college. Many of these students (and their parents) likely researched rankings and statistics of various schools to help with their choice. The College Scorecard is one database issued by the U.S. Department of Education that compares colleges across many key statistics.

Its use, however, is anything but simple.

In this webinar, Dr. Dale Lehman, Director of the Executive MBA in Business Analytics program at Loras College, explores The College Scorecard data, using it as an example of how data analysis can both yield meaningful insights and misinform. This webinar will also provide brief information about Loras’ graduate analytics programs, including a student perspective.

We hope you will join us for this engaging presentation on Feb 21, 2019 at 12:00 PM Central Time (US and Canada) on the rapidly growing and changing field of data analytics.  Registration for this webinar is now open.
