College of Business
Guest speaker, Dean Reception and Parade Watch Party
3:30-7 p.m., BSN Atrium and Lawn

Boston Market Chief Brand Officer Sara Bittorf will kick off the College of Business homecoming celebration with a discussion about her recent appearance on the popular CBS Television show, "Undercover Boss." Bittorf will speak about her career, her experiences on the award-winning show - she was the first executive on the show to fire someone during an episode - and how the company has used the information gleaned from the experience to shape management decisions. Bittorf's remarks will precede a panel discussion on a prevailing trend in business: data-driven decision making. Big data technologies are emerging fast and companies have the ability to collect heaps of information that intuition alone can't decipher. Data-driven decision-making skills are the answer to capitalizing on this abundance of information. Panelists include the executive vice president of Avon, the co-CEO of FedEx, and the director of business operations for the Florida Panthers.  For more information and panelist bios, click here.
