Analytics Capstone Project

 

A highlight of the Master of Business Analytics curriculum is the Analytics Capstone Project, which gives students an opportunity to work on real-life data science problems with industry practitioners. Over a period of seven months, students work in teams of two with sponsor organizations around the United States and abroad. In January, the student teams are matched with host organizations and assigned dedicated faculty advisors. From February to May, students work on the projects on campus at MIT, meeting regularly with their faculty advisor and host organization. In the summer, students travel to the host organization for a full-time summer internship. Finally in September, upon completion of the summer internship and submission of a final report and presentation, students earn their formal degree.

Connecting Across Campus

With nearly 11,000 students, more than half of whom are graduate students, and about 1,100 faculty, MIT sits along the Charles River in Cambridge, Massachusetts. It’s a short walk across the Mass Ave Bridge to the city of Boston. MIT Sloan is located on the Red Line subway in Kendall Square.

A Vibrant Network

The community of students, faculty, and staff at MIT Sloan are a dynamic and welcoming group, coming together from diverse backgrounds and all corners of the world to teach, learn, and invent the future at MIT Sloan.

The energy grabs you as soon as you step on campus. It’s impossible to ignore. And since it’s MIT, we’re busy measuring that energy, capturing it, and finding the best way to harness it to impact the world.

Cross-disciplinary study and teamwork are built into the structure and culture of both MIT Sloan and MIT. These connections often provide the spark that ignites new ideas, new products, and new companies. Students may take classes from departments outside MIT Sloan to pursue their interests and round out their knowledge and skills. MIT Sloan faculty are deeply involved in cross-disciplinary research centers like the MIT Operations Research Center, the MIT Innovation Initiative, and the MIT Center for Finance and Policy.

Expert and Approachable Faculty

You’ll notice an informality at MIT born of mutual respect. Everyone here is exceptional, and everyone assumes you are, too. The professors you have lunch with know that because you’re at MIT, you have a hand in something both interesting and meaningful. They respect that. If you have questions, they'll help you find the answers, or lead you to someone who can. And those expert professors, like most people here, are refreshingly down to earth.

"Being a part of the MIT MBAn program allowed me to use my analytics skills in real settings." 
~Karoline Skatteboe, MBAn '2017
