Objectives

Upon success of the course, the student will be able to:

- make a literature/method review,

- propose and implement business analytics solutions,

- organize work in group,

- write a report and present it in a context of work in group.

Contents

The students, organized in groups, will receive a problem from a "sponsor" of the project: company, research institute, etc. The job is to understand the problem, do the necessary research and develop one or more solutions. If necessary, the group will also have to organize working meetings with the sponsor.

For the business analytics orientation, the themes will concern the use of data in a business context: prediction methods, classification and clustering, statistical analysis, machine learning, etc. The issues may also be data management, data gathering recommendations, the type of data needed, etc.

The sponsors provide the data, research questions and / or possibly help in supervising the work of the group of students. Students may be required to sign confidentiality clauses. The student cannot register for the course without accepting these clauses.

This is not an internship and, unless otherwise agreed, it is not intended that the group of students work directly with the sponsor. Group work remains within the University of Lausanne.

The course is mandatory for the track Business Analytics.

Pre-requisites

THIS COURSE IS ONLY OPEN FOR THE STUDENTS IN THE SPECIFIC TRACK
