Community of Interest: Economic Impact Analysis

The Center for Business Analytics (CBA) Economic Impact Analysis Program (EIAP) bring together students, faculty, researchers, and the business community to gather, analyze, and report on the organization, programs, and policies that impact the economic drivers of a region.

The mission of the EIAP at the CBA is to help companies by providing tools for decision making, establishing measures for strategic goal achievement, and layout the cost benefit and financial feasibility of service development and deployment.

Our goal is to communicate these findings in ways that are straightforward, targeted, and sustainable, providing companies, industries or regions with analytics to drive prosperity.
