The Club
The Strategic Business Analytics Club, a Business Analytics think tank, brings together directors from various French and international businesses, as well as representatives from ESSEC and Accenture. These decision makers collaborate with researchers to fuel debate and generate intellectual motivation among participants.

The Strategic Business Analytics Chair organizes several seminars throughout the year dealing with new technologies and innovations. These offer opportunities to report on activities, and generate interest from new and different audiences. The activities are usually held at the ESSEC campuses in Cergy and La Defense as well as at Accenture offices. They provide an opportunity for program participants to interact regularly with students, business, governments and the society as a whole.

Events and activities are substantiated by a stream of publications stemming from the work of the Strategic Business Analytics Chair’s research teams—Professors, PhDs and Students and also in collaboration with external partners in some cases. While some publications are strictly academic in nature, others are accessible to a broader audience and engage the public in the process. External think tanks and the media are involved as appropriate.
