The advertising industry is undergoing tremendous change as the increasing availability and use of data drives processes towards more automation and efficiency. Mediaocean, being the leading platform for media buying across the industry, is at the vanguard of many of these changes. We use data-driven quantitative research to surface interesting new insights to both buyers and sellers of media, leading to better price discovery in the marketplace. The technologies used in these initiatives include real-time data processing, data mining and machine learning, statistical analysis and visualization, and user-friendly, mobile interface development. We will discuss our ongoing research initiatives, as well as the internship program that we have in these areas – in particular, how we’re studying the usage patterns of the advertising buyer and seller to further our understanding of the industry and modernize how they interact.
Columbia University and their consortium school members are pleased to announce the 11th Annual Engineering Consortium Career Fair on Friday, October 17, 2014 on Columbia University's Morningside Heights campus. Last year the fair attracted over 1,400 students and alumni from top engineering schools and over 130 pre-eminent national and international engineering employers.
The Fall Career Fair will include organizations from many industries including finance, consulting, consumer packaged goods, media, marketing, advertising, and more and is open to undergraduate and graduate students and alumni. We welcome students who are interested in internship as well as full time opportunities. It is a unique and productive way to meet employers looking to hire students and alumni from Columbia University.
