Course Description

Students will be guided through the process of developing their soft (communications) and hard (Technical) skills while delivering a business analytics project to support decision making in organizations. In this culminating project, students draw on the breadth and depth of the curriculum to address an industry supplied problem in small teams. The capstone project will involve application of industry accepted methodologies and analytical tools to solve real-world problems in R&D, marketing, supply chain, healthcare, finance and/or other disciplines. Students who cannot participate in university provided projects, with the permission of the program coordinator, are provided with two alternative project options: a) conduct a real-world business analytics project individually in a similar manner as above with an organization of their choice; or b) conduct a data analytics project individually as part of a research project under the guidance of an OIS Department faculty member.
