Oakland University and CGS Advisors partner to educate students on how to “Compete in the Connected World”

LOGO - Oakland UniversityBack by popular demand, CGS Advisors’ Managing Director, Gregg Garrett, will be teaching the “Competing in a Connected World” course at Oakland University.  Introduced in 2013, this advanced course teaches students how to find new ways to gain a competitive edge in the ever-changing “connected” landscape.  Previously offered by the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE), the course will now be conducted in partnership with OU’s School of Business Administration and will bring together students from both disciplines to develop and assess ideas for commercial viability.  This year, two additional faculty members, Dr. Mohan Tanniru, Ph.D. and CGS Advisors’ own Dr. Warren Ritchie, Ph.D., will partner with Gregg Garrett in leading this exciting and innovative course.

“Competing in the connected world is not simply a technical or architectural challenge, it is a business model challenge. Connected will impact every organization in every industry. It is great to see a school like Oakland University preparing its students to lead the evolution of businesses by placing value on and providing opportunities in unique and expanding spaces such as Connected.”  – Warren Ritchie, Ph.D.

“We had a great experience working with the students last year and look forward to working with that same type of passion and energy again.  We feel that Oakland University, and the region as a whole, sits in a very unique place when it comes to developing the connected economy.  The Detroit Metro area has a deep heritage in the automotive industry, an industry that has been at the forefront of innovation for decades. We are excited to continue our partnership with Oakland University and to have this opportunity to share our expertise and enthusiasm in exploring the evolution of connectivity within the corporate world.” – Gregg Garrett
