Business analytics students available to help your organisation
Does your organisation face a challenging problem? Do you have a set of data but aren’t sure how best to use it? Perhaps you’re looking to innovate and apply leading edge technologies into your everyday processes?
The UCL Analytics Partnership is providing organisations with the opportunity to host master’s students who will apply their business analytics and computational skills to provide actionable insights.
We are looking to work in partnership with a wide range of organisations from corporates through to startups who are operating in the public, private and third sectors.
Our students’ skills and backgrounds
UCL’s Business Analytics students enter the programme with a range of business experience or build directly upon their undergraduate degrees. They are intellectually curious, self-motivated, and passionate about technology and data.
Core modules in Business Strategy and Predictive Analytics provide a foundation in how companies create value and competitive advantage in complex, innovation-intensive, data-driven environments.
Statistical Foundations and Programming for Business Analytics ensure that students have the necessary statistical and programming skills to be able to make effective use of the latest analytics tools.
Additional core modules in Marketing Analytics and Operations Analytics explore in greater depth how data and analytics can unlock value in these key areas and build the insight and skills required to define and deliver practical, high-impact business analytics projects that improve business performance.
To date, over 400 consulting projects have been delivered by our MSc Business Analytics students.
- Improvement of an existing predictive model to help customers discover products using personalised recommendations.
- Application of Deep Learning for Image Segmentation in Fashion Apparel.
- An Integrated Approach to the Application of Marketing Analytics in Belongings Management

What difference can the projects make?
“As a business, we had the pleasure of working with an excellent student, who had a very clear idea of her goals. She delivered on the project, leaving us with a well-articulated and carefully designed piece of work that we could integrate into our own product.”
“We have gained both valuable answers around the processes in which we work and a tool which speeds up our existing practice of data analysis.”
“The student delivered details and insights that we could not have foreseen, and this will now be a core part of how we take the business forward.”
“We gained insights that will be used to improve our services and – hopefully – help us to generate additional income.”
“My staff gained a lot from working with the master’s student, learning the approach taken by a data scientist to a problem, and developing coaching skills for problem-solving issues that arose.”
“The student delivered to us a phenomenal level of insights that we had not considered, enabling us to illustrate to clients how AI will help with predictive analysis.”
“The project provided a fresh and specialist pair of eyes that our business otherwise would not be able to justify bringing in!”
