BHEF's Strategic Business Engagement Model moves business and higher education from transactional relationships to strategic partnerships to meet workforce needs.
The Data Science and Analytics (DSA)-Enabled Graduate Competency Map is the first industry-validated competency map in this field. It provides higher education, business, and students with an actionable common framework to enable students and new graduates to develop DSA skills and more easily transition into the workforce and apply those skills. Higher education institutions can use it to map existing curricula or current learning outcomes in DSA to understand alignment and identify gaps and develop new educational courses or programs to fill identified gaps. The competency map can also help businesses prioritize competencies for a project/employee by linking them to business/research objectives and align job families and descriptions to appropriate competencies.
