Members of the Ithaca College community convened in the School of Business atrium on Friday, September 27, to celebrate the dedication of the Neeson Business Analytics Lab and the Neeson Digital Marketing and Analytics Lab. The ceremony capped off Professions Week 2019, during which students from all majors were invited to attend panel discussions, presentations, and networking events with industry professionals.
John J. Neeson ’84, leading marketing analytics expert and School of Business alumnus who generously funded the creation of the labs, was on-hand with his wife, Tracy, to officially dedicate the spaces alongside School of Business Dean Sean Reid and President Shirley M. Collado with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
Dean Reid thanked John and Tracy for their transformational gift that will help School of Business students access and master the latest tools and technologies. “Students going out into the work force are expected to have these skills, and we continually hear back from employers who recruit our students that they are showing up career-ready,” Reid said. “So we’ve been doing an excellent job with that so far, and this analytics lab is going to be an even greater step in the next direction.”
