Colleges and universities are embracing analytics and using data, technology, and specialized knowledge to answer questions, reveal institutional needs, predict outcomes, or improve financial performance. NACUBO’s Integrating Analytics Forum provides content to help business officers tackle their data and integrate the use of analytics to inform decisions that meet institutional goals. Topics such as program margins, activity based costing, data governance, student success, tools and technology, data visualization, benchmarking, resource allocation, financial aid decisions, and more are addressed. Case studies and campus expert panels provide institutional relevance.
Activity Based Costing (ABC) analysis is a decision support tool for academic resource management and related financial decisions. During this 1.5 day event, you will take an in-depth look at how the model improves decisions on program size, teaching methods, faculty workload, space utilization, staffing and enrollment decisions down to the course level. Through these applications you will gain an in-depth understanding of data and analysis that can inform decisions about program investment and disinvestment, and the launching of new programs.
