Master of Business Analytics

Analytics Capstone Project

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.
