MSIA 410: Analytics Consulting Project Leadership

Quarter Offered

Winter ; Russell Walker


In this class, we examine project management, business communication, and client interaction best practices that support the MSiA practicum and capstone projects. Special emphasis is given to translating or relating the analytical output of projects to the vocabulary and expectations of business functions in marketing, operations, and finance. We examine the best practices in managing client / employer expectations in the analytical environment. This provides students with the tools to successfully navigate the challenges of leading analytical projects while developing top-notch client-facing skills for their careers.
