Students apply their business analytic and research skills to a real business problem in the completion of the business analytics industry project. This project is completed in teams and students work on a project identified by a private or public company, a not-for-profit organisation or an industry association. Students are required to present the results of their analysis to both the client and faculty.
Students are able to (1) prepare and explain a proposal for an industry-based project; (2) prepare a comprehensive written industry report; (3) deliver a high-quality oral presentation to the industry sponsors and faculty
; (4) develop an appreciation of analytical tools and techniques that can be used to inform management; and (5) apply an industry standard tool set to deliver operational results.
Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) prepare and explain a proposal for an industry-based project; (2) oral presentation to industry; and (3) business report to industry. Further information is available in the unit outline.
