As we gear up for a vibrant summer at the UNH Center for Business Analytics - Paul College, we reflect on a season filled with learning, networking, and growth. Our community has been buzzing with activity, engaging with both industry leaders and bright students, and here’s a glimpse into some of our recent highlights:

February's Supply Chain Management Networking Night
In February, we kicked off with the Supply Chain Management Networking Night, a fantastic event that brought together professionals and students passionate about supply chain innovations. Special thanks to Russ Miles, Senior Lecturer at UNH, for his invaluable insights, which enriched our discussions and learning.

MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference Highlights
March took us to the exciting MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference, where we delved into the cutting-edge of sports analytics and artificial intelligence. It was exhilarating to sponsor and accompany two of our promising students to this event. Observing their active participation and networking was a proud moment for all of us. Their enthusiasm for deepening their understanding of data analytics in sports is exactly the kind of passion we aim to foster at the Center and Sports Analytics Lab.

Insights from the Boston Executive Forum
Also, we had the pleasure of attending an enriching dialogue at the Omni Boston Hotel at Seaport, where Paul College’s Dean Lucy Gilson and Don Colleran, former President & CEO of FedEx Express, discussed the crucial roles of work ethic and embracing competition in professional success. This event was a significant opportunity for our community to gain firsthand knowledge from seasoned leaders.

Team Outing to Fenway Park
April was marked by a trip to the Red Sox Career Fair at Fenway Park, an event we proudly organized and sponsored alongside UNH Career and Professional Success, and the College of Health & Human Services. The day wasn't just about career growth; it also included a fun group outing to a baseball game, blending professional development with community building.

As we look forward to the summer, we are thrilled about the upcoming projects and the opportunities they bring. 

We invite all students and faculty to stay engaged, explore our upcoming events, and contribute to our projects. Your involvement is what shapes our success! Thank you for a great season, and let’s keep the momentum going!
