PHILADELPHIA, PA & NEW ALBANY, OH (January 7, 2015)—St. Joseph’s University is proud to announce that T-Pro Solutions, a leading CPG trade promotion software company, will be incorporating their analytics software in the St. Joseph’s University undergraduate curriculum in the Spring 2015 semester. T-Pro Solutions’ practical application of data mining and analytics will be utilized in the Introduction to Data Mining course, instructed by Dr. Ron Klimberg.

The data mining course is required by SJU’s undergraduate Business Intelligence/Business Analytics (BI/BA) majors and minors. As part of this course is the Analytics Cup. The Analytics Cup is an experiential learning experience in which student teams will be given a real-world BI/BA decision problem using state of the art software. Several teams will extend the concepts of data mining to an exploration of the T-Pro Solutions’ Data Mining toolset on a large live dataset. In this course, students are expected to find the patterns in the data and to prepare reports and presentations covering the implications of their results. At the end of the semester, student teams will present their results to a panel of experts.

“The opportunity to use state-of-the-art software such as T-PRO Analytics and apply the software to a real world BI/BA situation provides the students with a superior learning experience to improve their problem-solving skills and subsequently will lead to better job offers.”-Dr. Ron Klimberg, St. Joseph’s University.

“We feel our practical application of data mining and analytics will serve as a valuable resource to the St. Joseph’s University curriculum. The St. Joe’s student’s exposure to the T-Pro Analytics predictive analytics software, will help them enter the business world with the practical experience necessary to succeed upon graduation.”-Wayne Spencer, President T-Pro Solutions, Inc.
