MIS41170 Capstone

Academic Year 2019/2020

Students will carry out a large independent research project and describe it in an extensive, detailed research report.

For most students, the research project will be in close collaboration with an analytics employer.

Projects will be proposed by employers, faculty, and students, and projects will be allocated by faculty to students based on a statement of interest and qualification.

Projects will feature a mixture of practical, academic, and internship styles as appropriate for the student, the employer, and the project.

Projects will be carried out by solo students or in pairs, with faculty approval.
