Industry and Higher Education, v30 n6 p433-439 Dec 2016
BHEF has achieved particular success in operationalizing its National Higher Education and Workforce Initiative (HEWI) through regional initiatives in data science and analytics (DSA). Leveraging its membership of corporate CEOs, university presidents and government agency leaders, BHEF seeded new undergraduate pathways in DSA at Case Western Reserve University in Ohio and Drake University in Iowa. Using BHEF's Strategic Business Engagement Model with higher education, these regional initiatives, as part of HEWI, successfully operationalize BHEF strategies. This article also describes how BHEF, with the support of its partners, has cultivated a community of practice around undergraduate data science for its members and the nation.
