Faculty Study Tour 2016

Uber Advanced Technologies Center
GE's Center for Additive Technology Advancement

In December 2016, the Deming Center at Columbia Business School hosted a study tour to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Faculty, doctoral students, associates, Board Members, and friends of the Center attended several presentations, each of which focused on the role and use of disruptive technology in industry. The group attended presentations with Uber’s Advanced Technologies Center, GE’s Center for Additive Technology Advancement, and Arconic’s Technology Group.

The objective of the trip was to broaden faculty and student’s exposure to industry and build bridges between theory and practice, thereby enriching the curriculum at the Business School.
