MSc Business Analytics student projects available for 2021

Students from the University’s Business Analytics MSc programme are available for three-month projects to help your organisation with a current data challenge, under academic supervision, at no cost to you.

Students are available full-time, from mid-June to mid-September to undertake a project using their expertise in data mining, forecasting, decision analysis and/or optimisation, and logistics analytics. The students explore ideas and solutions to a data-related ‘problem’ of interest to your organisation and present their insights and recommendations in a report at the end of the placement. They can be based in your office or work remotely.

The established and highly respected MSc has partnered diverse organisations for the collaborative project including the United Nations, the Netherlands Red Cross, Ford, Dixons Carphone, Virgin Media and Government departments.

Past projects include:

  • Managing hotel and flight inventory to ensure optimal delivery for customers
  • Collating data from multiple sources to visualise organisational health
  • A review of demand forecast and supply management to meet regulatory requirements
