Partnering to Impact Current and Future Data Leaders

Combining the collective expertise of researchers and practitioners, Drexel LeBow’s ongoing collaboration with Precisely exemplifies the College’s emphasis on academic-industry partnerships.

Drexel LeBow’s Center for Applied AI and Business Analytics, a hub for data-focused initiatives that drive outcomes for students and companies, and Precisely, a global leader in data integrity, both recognize the value of understanding data practices and priorities across industries. With a shared interest in providing insights to help companies benchmark and work toward their data objectives, the Center for Applied AI and Business Analytics and Precisely formed a partnership that benefits students and organizations alike.

The first two years of the partnership have yielded applied research output, with comprehensive findings and insights from two different surveys of data and analytics professionals.

Our partnership with LeBow's Center for Applied AI and Business Analytics helps us keep a pulse on what's driving the data integrity industry and provides valuable insights to data leaders who are striving to make data-driven business decisions. What's more, our collaboration also helps students on their journey to future careers as data and business analytics practitioners.
