“NIDA Business School is one of the leading academic institutes in Thailand producing qualified post graduate students in both Master and Ph.D. Programs. To broaden knowledge and vision of our students, the School encourages students to participate in many academic activities including conference proceedings, annual seminars, and student exchange programs. This year, our student team was selected as one of the finalists and presented their work professionally at the conference”. Chongwatpol said.
The conference hosted the premier event for business intelligence and business analytics professionals worldwide, over 4,000 attendees this year. “They have performed consistently well in the big data and data mining course. As a part of the course project, they participated in the data and analytics challenge organized annually by Terada University Networks (TUN). By attending one of the largest business intelligence and analytics conference, it is a great opportunity for them not only to show cases of their work but also to network and exchange ideas with professionals increasing their educational and career opportunities in the long run.” Chongwatpol added.
