  • Analytics Capstone Project


    FOR STUDENTS:

    A highlight of the Master of Business Analytics curriculum is the Analytics Capstone Project, which gives students an opportunity to work on real-life data science problems with industry practitioners. Over a period of seven months, students work in teams of two with sponsor organizations around the United States and abroad. In January, the student teams are matched with host organizations and assigned dedicated faculty advisors. From February to May, students work on the projects on campus at MIT, meeting regularly with their faculty advisor and host organization. In the summer, students travel to the host organization for a full-time summer internship. Finally in September, upon completion of the summer internship and submission of a final report and presentation, students earn their formal degree.

    Sample Companies:

    • McKinsey & Company
    • StubHub
    • General Electric
    • Group M

    FOR PARTNER ORGANIZATIONS:

    The rigor of the MIT Sloan Master of Business Analytics program prepares students for careers that apply and manage modern data science to solve critical business challenges. The Analytics Capstone Project is a core component of this program, giving students real-world experience solving data challenges from organizations around the world.

    MIT Sloan is seeking proposals from organizations around the world and from every industry and sector to sponsor student groups for the 7-month project course. Dedicated teams of students use analytical tools to solve your key business challenges and present applicable solutions at the completion of the capstone period. The teams perform their work under confidentiality agreements and the results are the sole property of the respective sponsors.
