Course content and structure

The aim of the course is to make students apply the analytical skills and techniques acquired during the first year of the program on a problem that is relevant to a company, an organization or another outside partner. 
The analysis should result in a “consultancy” report addressing a relevant problem for an external partner, i.e. the focus should not only be on theory but also on practical problem solving and advise.

Teaching methods
Three lectures (with focus on introducing the business project and Q&A).
Supervision by relevant faculty (agreements are made bilaterally).

Feedback will be given in different forms:

1) Individual feedback during office hours.

2) Individual/group-level feedback during supervision meetings.
