#CollegeSeries Business Analytics Night

Sponsored by Temple University's Fox School of Business

On Monday, March 28, college students and recent graduates are invited to go behind-the-scenes with business analytics, strategy and data executives at this exclusive #CollegeSeries event at Citizens Bank Park.

Event Details

  • Learn from Phillies business analytics executives during a moderated question-and-answer session at Pass and Stow at Citizens Bank Park. Panelists will provide excellent insight into the set of disciplines and technologies used by the Phillies for solving business problems using data analysis, statistical models and other quantitative methods, as well as share their career experience and advice. Speakers include:
  • Practice networking with Phillies executives and other special guests during a Phillies Networking Hour. Meet informally with front office personnel from various departments, as well as those who spearhead the Phillies intern and Phillies Ballgirls programs. Attendees are invited to bring their resumes. During this time, attendees are also welcome to take photos with the World Series Trophies, as well as meet 1993 National League Champion Mickey Morandini.
  • Meet members of Temple University’s Fox School of Business, who will be on-site to share information about their graduate programs.

Free memberships, as well as scholarship information, will be provided to #CollegeSeries attendees. Plus, students are invited to enjoy refreshments at the Networking Hour, compliments of PICPA. More than 22,000 accounting professionals, recent graduates, and students are members of the PICPA because they know there is strength, knowledge, and power in numbers.
