Sacred Heart University performed well in a recent College Factual ranking of business administration and management degree programs. College Factual, an organization that helps students find the best college fit for them, ranks programs offered by four-year colleges and universities. This ranking puts SHU’s program in the top 10 percent of all business administration programs in the United States.
Sacred Heart University master’s graduate Vincent Santucci has earned a scholarship from the Connecticut chapter of the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts (NACVA). The Connecticut chapter of NACVA established the scholarship fund to assist accounting students who want to become certified public accountants (CPAs) and certified valuation analysts (CVAs). These two professions are related but perform distinct functions: CPAs provide financial audit and tax services, while CVAs determine the value of a business based on its assets, income, cash flow and similar factors.
As far as we know, there were no humanoids amid the full house of educators who gathered October 9 at Sacred Heart University for a discussion on “Artificial Intelligence—Applications and Implications.” Rupendra Paliwal, SHU’s provost and vice president for Academic Affairs, and Cenk Erdil, assistant professor of computer science and engineering, moderated the session. It featured five leading experts from the AI field: Jerry Smith, vice president of data sciences and AI strategy at Cognizant; Kathy McGroddy-Goetz, head of strategic partnerships at Medidata Solutions; Lin Zhou, master inventor and program director of Education Innovation at IBM Watson Education; Emily Reid, principal of E.E. Reid Consulting, LLC; and Hugh Seaton, CEO, Aquinas Learning, Inc.
