Luxottica Halfway Point

The primary goal of the Luxottica project team’s engagement with Sears Optical is to build predictive models to project sales from eye exams. They have tackled the first of two stages through an in-depth analysis of eye exam data and finding correlations in the historical and recent trends,IMG_6641 between exam metrics and sales. And are currently working on how to positively influence sales with this new information they found. The team is compiled of Andy Auble the project manager as well as Lawlor Coe, Sunny Dhillon, Alec Remaly, and Justin Cohen. All involved will attest to the fact that although this project was unlike anything PSE has done before, it has been one of the most rewarding and exciting projects they have been involved in. Collectively the team put in roughly 100 hours  using SAS, a business analytics and intelligence software, as well as extensive market research through data manipulation and regression analysis to create predictive models for the Luxottica client. “Andy was an amazing project manager,” said Alec Remaly. “He delegated who would work on what aspect of the data to make the spreadsheets breakdown more easily”. Luxottica Mid-WayNot only has everyone on the team felt that Andy astutely placed them in the right positions through out the project, “he also knew how to keep up with us so that we got everything done in time for the halfway meeting, ” said Sunny Dhillon. Below is a break down of what each member has been in charge of for the project thus far. All of the people involved loved “the uncharted and daunting task because it helped (us) understand what we want to do in the future when we graduate,” said Lawlor Coe. “I now wish I had minored in business analytics.” Alec and Andy: Ranked regional managers efficiency based on the numbers found in the spread sheets Lawlor and Sunny: Worked on coordination analysis and weather analysis Justin Cohen: Used his analytics major to look at the more quantitative side of the project, including running regression analysis and building models from the 30 spreadsheets into one using SASLuxottica Mid-Way 3Luxottica Mid-Way 2~AP

Spring 2015 National Convention Recap

cropped-10338664_975805139097176_858399766787057944_o1.jpgOn April 14th, 2015, a group of 38 exuberant PSE Miami members and one seasoned academic advisor, journeyed across the country to Houston Texas with the hopes of bringing back Top Gold Chapter for the 11th time.

After year long dedication to the chapters growth from the executive board,  11 nominations for awards at the national convention, three potential scholarship winners, months of preparations, and close to 500 pounds of business professional stuffed suitcases, the Gamma Gamma chapter was more than ready to compete Wednesday.

Tuesday night and all of Wednesday, was a whirlwind of meetings, group practices, and printing excitement. Everyone in attendance either prepared for the final presentations or sat in to listen and give feedback to the members who would be facing the judges.  Perhaps the best part of Tuesday was the Top Chapter presentation. For the first time the whole group came together in one room to, for lack of a better word, brag about the hard work we as family, and chapter had done over the past year. With more than just exhaustion and jitters battling against our management team, they (John Leist, Carley Powell, Allie Englheart, Maaika Rutter, and Tori Fitzmartin) effortlessly executed the presentation in front of all Gamma Gamma members in attendance. After some constructive criticism from Dr. Norris our advisor and a nationals corespondent we received an amazing pep talk from three of our past graduated members,  and called it a night.

It doesn’t take many words to explain how everyone did Wednesday and Thursday. They killed it.

As the group continued into Thursday, everyone attended a plethora of events catered to better understand PSE as a national organization as well as speakers looking to help all in attendance with internship questions. When the events were over, most people in our chapter took the time to eat another six bagels from Einstein’s and take either a break by the pool, or work together on homework.

By the time Saturday and the banquet came around the whole chapter was anxious to see if we had been received in the positive light we had worked so hard to emit throughout the week.

Besides tables of the other PSE chapters we all held our breath as each of the awards were handed out. When Top Chapter came around the group gathered together one last time.

Exhales blurred out the third and second place teams as they respectively received their awards.

I don’t think that anyone actually heard the announcer say PSE Gamma Gamma won.

Instead we collectively screamed as the Miami University logo flashed on the screen, once again returning the Top Gold Chapter trophy to our hands.

On the flight home, no one minded the extra carry-on weight

Bellow is a list of all the acclimates received by our chapter 

Top Gold Chapter (1st)

New Member Spotlight: Yash Patel

Following the exciting week our Gamma Gamma chapter had at the national convention it seems only fair that we check up on the amazing new members that are the future of our organization.

YASH PATEL

IMG_6649Major: Accounting

Hometown: Mumbai, India

Hobbies/Passions: Loves to dance and go to the gym

What else are you involved in on campus? 

I am currently involved in the Indian Student Association and Pi Sigma Epsilon. As a freshman I am working really hard to try and find things that I am interested in and these two organizations have really helped me feel comfortable on campus. Through the Indian Student Association I was able to be a part of the Diwali on Miami’s campus, and what we do is put on a event where everyone preforms traditional, classical dances from Bhangra to Bollywood. It was really fun and I met some of my closest friends on campus through it, so I am excited to be in it next year as well.

If you could be any animal, what animal would you embody?

What superhero do you try to embody? 

Batman. He is a silent guardian and watchful protector.

What have you most enjoyed about PSE

I am very glad that I was able to join PSE. Everyone is very welcoming and easy to work with which is nice because I was worried it was going to be hard to work with everyone. The interview process is really intense so when we were able to sit in the first meeting it was cool to understand that PSE is more motivating and exciting than intense.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years

I want to have a luxurious house in Malibu…For some reason I have always wanted to end up there and it looks beautiful.201109-a-features-malibu-state-of-mind

Hobbies/Passions: AAA, promoting diversity,

What else are you involved in on campus?

 images-1           I am involved in the Investment Banking Club; I love it because of the learning experience. We are able to goto a ton of really interesting workshops and lectures, and it helps create an amazing platform for my interests outside of my Finance major. I am also, a member of the Asian American Association (Triple A for the cool kids), which provides a really fun, neat community and we are able to meet and hangout with each other at a variety of different events. Most recently we rented out the top of Sushi Nara.

What superhero do you try to embody?

 The Flash. Superheroes are really cool but they can be pretty stuck up and The Flash is really down to earth, and with college and everything in my life it would really pay off to be quick.


If you could be any animal, what animal would you embody

What have most enjoyed about PSE

A lot of opportunity and it’s really enjoyable to meet a lot of people you wouldn’t typically meet.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years

Honestly, none of us know what’s going on, that’s the best part about being a freshman. I would love to be somewhere abroad, happy, eating well, and have least one friend. That’s the dream, as long as I’m happy, it’s okay.
