JAM Executive Summit

How to Transform and Create New Business
Models for Today’s New Student

JAM Executive Summit
Wednesday, May 29

The annual JAM Executive Summit is a special prelude to JAM exclusively for CIOs and C-level executives. The Executive Summit will help you drive digital transformation to support the new student, build a data-centric culture, and plan for the future with analytics. 

The Executive Summit presents dynamic speakers and an opportunity to collaborate with thought leaders and peers on pressing issues and changes in higher education:

Joyce Kim, an analyst on Ovum's Higher Education Team, will deliver the keynote presentation, Trends in Higher Education Technology and Digital Transformation. Pulling from her recent research, Joyce will discuss the modern institution and how they are keeping up with today's new student needs.

Bob Atkins of Gray Associates will present Creating a Culture of Data-driven Decision Making, which will showcase how it is essential for senior leaders to make analytics a strategic directive, create a culture of data-driven decision making, and view analytics as a core resource of innovation and economics. He will discuss how if properly mined and analyzed, data can help institutions increase agility, improve overall performance, and even identify new revenue opportunities.



The Executive Summit is a half-day program that concludes with the JAM Keynote Address on Wednesday, May 29. You may choose to attend the Executive Summit only, or participate in the full JAM conference through Saturday, June 1.
