Oklahoma State University-Oklahoma City celebrates its partnership and ongoing collaborations with Bear Cognition. Bear Cognition is a vital partner in the institution’s commitment to leveraging data to drive improvement in performance and service to stakeholders. Through the generous support of the Bear Cognition team and its owner, Philip Erdoes, the company has provided OSU-OKC with real-time access to world-class data scientists and, most critically, actionable intelligence. The ongoing partnership allows OSU-OKC to more effectively monitor key institutional performance indicators, including those focused on graduate success and organizational effectiveness.
Bear Cognition representatives have also played central roles in OSU-OKC’s ongoing initiatives focused on addressing current and emergent workforce needs. Teams are collaborating with the institution on identifying the competencies needed in the areas of data analysis, project management and effective business processes. Such insights are invaluable to OSU-OKC’s development and implementation of new programming that will connect the institution’s highly diverse student population with rewarding, high-demand career opportunities with the metro area’s and state’s leading employers.
