Course Title

MSBA Capstone (SPRING 2021)

Collaboration Overview

We are seeking organizations to sponsor capstone projects with Notre Dame students in the MS in Business Analytics (MSBA) and dual-degree (MBA/MSBA) programs during the Spring 2021 semester. We seek real-world analytics projects that are supported by a rich dataset that allows students to experience the full analytics project lifecycle, from project planning through data preparation, analysis, and reporting. Our students develop expertise in areas such as data exploration and visualization, statistics, predictive modeling, data mining, machine learning, and unstructured data analytics. They also wrestle with ethical challenges in analytics and learn how to communicate complex modeling results to non-technical audiences with data storytelling. Additional curriculum detail is available here.
