Real World Class Project

In this course, students will work in groups while undertaking a project for a real-world assigned client. The students will use different problem-solving methodologies and their initiative to conceptualize social impact-driven solutions for their client. Previous project partners have included Inetum, a company headquartered in Paris, France, with a Data Science and Analytics unit office located in Lisbon. Students in this course previously worked with Inetum's Data and Analytics lead on a real world project that involved analyzing data related to spending patterns of consumers in two Lusophone countries that assisted their client with the development of new strategies to narrow the profitability gap in their operations.

In addition to the real-world project, students will be able to:

- Explore how to use different problem-solving methodologies, implementing hypothesis-driven analysis and critical thinking skills
- Learn how to use initiative to conceptualize social impact-driven solutions for organizations, in the absence of full information, while solving for complex problems
