Learn how you can pair your knack for technology with a business degree from The University of Alabama. Attend an Open House on January 22nd from 5-7 P.M. in Bidgood Hall and discover new programs from the Manderson Graduate School of Busines:
Master of Science in Management Information Systems
Virtually all software used today — the source of so much automation and disruptive innovation in our world — is created by human beings. Simply put, software cannot create new software. Instead, software solutions must be created by people: teams of highly skilled information technology professionals, who together perform a creative, challenging, and highly labor-intensive process.
The Master of Science in Management Information Systems, or MSMIS, prepares students to contribute to and, ultimately, to lead information technology teams in designing and delivering software solutions that effectively address real-world business needs
Master of Science in Business Analytics
Due to increases in the quantity and quality of accessible data, along with improvements in computing technology, the importance of analytics has grown dramatically over the past few years in all sectors. As a result, the demand for graduates with analytics skills has also increased.
The University of Alabama’s Master of Science in Business Analytics (MSBA) program focuses on teaching students how to use statistics, operations research/management science, data mining, machine learning, probability, algorithms, and data management in an integrative fashion to better understand, predict, and manage the behavior of systems and processes

ABSTRACT Some practical issues are addressed involving the control of the number of false alarms in process monitoring. This topic is of growing importance as the number of variables being monitored
Some practical issues are addressed involving the control of the number of false alarms in process monitoring. This topic is of growing importance as the number of variables being monitored and the frequency of measurement increase. An alternative formulation for evaluating and comparing the performance of control charts is given based on defining in-control, indifference and out-of-control regions of the parameter space. Methods are designed so that only changes of practical importance are to be detected quickly. This generalization of the existing framework makes control charting much more useful in practice, especially when many variables are being monitored. It also justifies to a greater extent the use of cumulative sum (CUSUM) methods.
ABOUT DR. WOODALL
William H. Woodall recently retired as a Professor of Statistics at Virginia Tech. He is a former Editor of the Journal of Quality Technology (2001–2003) and Associate Editor of Technometrics (1987–1995). He has published over 150 refereed journal papers, most on various aspects of process monitoring. He is the recipient of the ASQ Shewhart Medal (2002), ENBIS Box Medal (2012), William G.

Public Health Screening: Models, Algorithms, and Policies
Screening for diseases is an important, and extensively used, public health tool. Early detection can improve clinical outcomes and reduce the spread of infectious diseases, and is especially beneficial for diseases that have slow to develop and/or initially non-specific symptoms (e.g., Babesiosis, Zika, hepatitis, cystic fibrosis). A major challenge is to design public health screening policies that can classify a large number of subjects, having different risk factors, in an accurate and equitable manner, with limited resources and imperfect tests. Dr. Bish’s talk will draw upon the body of research that she has conducted over the years within a variety of screening contexts, ranging from donated blood screening for transfusion transmissible infections, to population-level infectious disease screening, to newborn screening for genetic diseases. She will present an overview of this research area, discuss open research questions, provide several key models to optimize resource allocation in public health screening, and highlight the challenges and opportunities.
