Data Analytics & the 21st Century CFO

The ability to analyze and interpret data has never been more integral to business success than it is in today’s business environment. On October 10, the Chaifetz School of Business Edward Jones Dean’s Breakfast Series will bring together those who perhaps utilize data analytics most in their profession - chief financial officers. Moderated by David Heimburger, vice president and chief financial officer of Saint Louis University, the panel will include CFOs from retail, public utilities and healthcare to discuss the importance of data analytics in their roles and the future of the accounting and finance professions.
