Students enrolled in distance learning and executive education programs at Carnegie Mellon University’s H. John Heinz III College recently descended upon Pittsburgh for a Summer CAMPus event spanning three days of informative sessions and local fun. Programs represented include Master of Science in Information Technology and Heinz College’s Chief Information Officer Institute.
During their visit to campus, students from Mexico, Colombia and the United States participated in information sessions focused on three critical areas of business intelligence: Intelligent Transportation Systems, Health Care IT and Data Analytics. The group also met with Ramayya Krishnan, Dean of Heinz College, and toured CMU’s campus meeting faculty researchers working in the business intelligence focus areas.
“Summer CAMPus is a great way for students in Heinz College’s distance programs to experience CMU’s Pittsburgh campus first-hand,” says Diana Basto, Assistant Director of Executive and International Programs at Heinz College and member of the organizing team of the Summer CAMPus event. “It also provides students the opportunity to get to know each other, as well as the staff and faculty with whom they’ll be interacting for the duration of the program.”
