MSBA CAPSTONE

Real-World Data Science Experience

Solving real problems for real clients with real data. Put your data science skills to the test in our MS in Business Analytics Capstone course.

Serve as a Consultant. Deliver Results.

MSBA Capstone team

Overseen by our curriculum advisory board and your faculty, the capstone course provides valuable, real-world experience within an environment of support and mentorship. The skills and knowledge gained will be tested to the fullest as you work within a team to provide a viable business solution to a complicated business problem.

Clients range from Fortune 500 companies to small startups and cross a range of industries. You’ll combine your client’s proprietary firm data with other public data, including social media streams and use the skills and techniques developed in the MSBA program to devise a solution your client may implement.

How the Capstone Project Works

You will work in a small team of student consultants, front-facing with the clients, but supported by the program managing director and faculty. You will learn strategy consulting methodologies for breaking problems down and synthesizing recommendations as well as how to manage clients and meetings. At the end of the semester, you will be able to deliver the three core deliverables of a data science project: Technical (code, cleansed data), Dashboard Visualization (Tableau, ggplot), Executive Deck (business result).
