Unique Analytics Capstone Project Model

The Master of Business Analytics program offers an exciting Analytics Capstone Project where students collaborate with industry professionals to solve real-world data science challenges. By participating, students receive a tuition offset of over $22K. This seven-month project involves teams of two students working with sponsor organizations in the United States and abroad. Students are matched with host organizations and supported by dedicated faculty advisors. They work on campus from February to May, meeting regularly with advisors and host organizations. In the summer, students embark on a full-time internship with the host organization. Upon completing the internship and submitting a final report and presentation in August, students graduate with their formal degree.
