The University of California, Riverside, is developing the business leaders of tomorrow with real-world decision-making software.
Orenburg USA’s Board MIT (management intelligence toolkit) has been implemented in graduate business programs, allowing business management theory to be taught through decision support applications. It will also be used to demonstrate how cutting-edge technology is being used to form, model and perfect solutions to meet business challenges.
“Business management theory is now being replaced in the classroom by technological breakthroughs,” said Professor Erik Rolland, of the graduate school of management. “Future executives must be in tune with these advancements, and we have found a need for better decision support systems in organizations. Board illustrates the complete process of building a corporate decision support system - from connecting to the data to learning about the data.”
“Board gives the students hands-on skills and is generic enough to be used for any decision support task. This is an excellent example of how two leading organizations in their respective fields are working together to prepare the leaders of tomorrow,” added Rolland.
A programming-free application generator, Board MIT can develop applications to support all aspects of decision-making. Teachers can illustrate theory with hands-on concepts and real-world data. Students receive training in decision support activities and are provided with actual skills and software experience.
“We are looking for educational organizations willing to use cutting-edge technology to meet the need for improved decision-making, through better information,” said Andrea Traverso, CEO of Orenburg USA. “The University of California is a major research institution in application development, and we see this partnership as the beginning to new and exciting advancements within management intelligence.”
The A. Gary Anderson Graduate School of Management has one of the only two undergraduate business programs in the UC system. The MBA program was established in 1983 and named after A. Gary Anderson, because of the $5 million gift from the Anderson Foundation.
