Course Details

Course Code: ANLY699 Course ID: 4880 Credit Hours: 6 Level: Graduate

Preparation for the Applied Business Analytics Project/Capstone begins on day one of a student's graduate program of study. The theories, research methods, analytical skills, analytical tools, and substantive knowledge obtained through their master's curriculum provide the basis for a major data analysis project. Students will work closely with the assigned faculty member to develop the subject matter of their project. The experiential or practical component of the class aims to apply learning in an aspect of interest related to the degree and concentrations of the student’s areas of specialization. It is understood to be a supervised project where data is collected from or about an approved organization. The selection of an organization or site for the project must relate to the content of the student’s course work and/or analytics concentration. Goals of the applied project will be submitted by the student using an application for approval to the faculty member and/or Program Director. The organization will serve as an opportunity to experience the practice of business or big data analytics. This option will act as a capstone of the student’s program and is to be completed in the student’s final semester.
