Hanne Russ, a second-year MBA student with specializations in Information Systems and Finance has a paper entitled “Business Intelligence as an Enabler of Organizational Agility" accepted by European Decision Sciences (EDSI) conference to be held in Hungary in summer 2013. Hanne is a member of the UMass Boston Jazz Band and received a Bachelor of Science in Business and Economics from the University of Hohenheim in Stuttgart, Germany, with specializations in Information Systems, Internal Management Functions, and International Business & Economics. Originally, the paper was written as a term paper for Professor Noushin Ashrafi’s course: Enterprise Business Intelligence (MSIS670). The course was designed to provide an overview of Business Intelligence concepts and included case analyses, concept discussion, and practical application of cutting-edge BI systems. The focus was on frameworks for identifying, evaluating and acting upon BI opportunities.
EDSI is a chapter of Decision Sciences Institute (DSI): a globally integrated professional association with an inclusive and cross-disciplinary philosophy. EDSI embraces the duality of globally determined local contexts. EDSI 2013 is a very special event that offers an extraordinary occasion for leading and budding scholars alike to meet and discuss new directions and trends, and provides a neutral platform for analyzing issues of current interest.”
