Partnership Opportunities

As part of its core mission, Bellarmine’s Institute for Advanced Analytics has an interest in helping organizations increase their analytical capabilities through the provision of talent, training, and thought partnership. In return, The Institute looks to its external partners for advice in keeping its curriculum current and relevant, for internship and placement opportunities for its students, and for educational material such as data sets, case studies, and guest lectures.

We welcome conversations with anyone wishing to discuss opportunities for partnership with The Institute. To initiate such a discussion, please contact the IAA Executive Director directly at zkhandwala@bellarmine.edu.
