      The growing use of “big data” and analytics is creating opportunities for strategic business change and innovation and also strong demand for skills and experience applying machine learning and related techniques to business problems.

      The seminar is open by permission to MBA and Executive MBA students, and to students in other MIT graduate programs. Interested students are asked to complete a questionnaire and submit it with their resume for consideration.They will be notified well in advance of the final course registration deadline for the fall semester.

      The course culminates with presentations of final project results to an audience including experts, entrepreneurs and executives.
