PwC: Developing Next-Gen Business Technology

PwC US and Carnegie Mellon University have partnered on a new Risk and Regulatory Services Innovation Center, which will advance how businesses use technology to solve organization-wide issues and address compliance requirements. The center resides in the H. John Heinz III College of Information Systems and Public Policy.

Leveraging CMU’s world-class thought and research leadership with PwC’s strategic client-engagement expertise, the Center conducts research on data analytics, information privacy and security, and other critical areas in the risk, regulatory and compliance sphere. Working closely with PwC resources, CMU faculty, students, and staff research, develop, and test next-generation technology solutions to help regulated industries, non-regulated industries, and the public safety sector solve their biggest challenges.

PwC is initially investing $11 million into the new center, including a faculty chair and fellowships, with potential funding of $31 million over five years. PwC and CMU also have developed executive training courses for chief risk officers and chief privacy officers.
