HOW THE CONSULTING PROJECT WORKS

The Consulting Project is a 6 month engagement where a group of Master of Management in Artificial Intelligence (MMAI) or Master of Business Analytics (MBAN) students are assigned to work with your organization on a project designated by you.

Our highly specialized students can help you experiment, test or find a solution to one of your business challenges. The students work with you on-site or virtually, 1-2 days per week, and are supported by our world-class faculty, data scientists and industry experts.

2
Identification of the data sources and articulating the extract, transform and load process.
3
Detailed information on the methodologies and technologies to be deployed.
4
 Agreement on deliverables.
5
Initial presentation of the deliverables for review and feedback.
6
Final presentation to all stakeholders.

 
GUIDELINES

  • All intellectual property created by the students is the property of the client. The School does not retain any ownership or rights.
  • There are three agreements that are executed: the agreement between Schulich and the client, the NDA between Schulich and the client, and the NDA between the student and the client.
  • The client is provided with resumes and assisted in selecting the right students to support their project objectives.
  • The client is invoiced 50% when the Statement of Work is agreed to by all parties. The remaining 50% is invoiced when the final deliverable is presented to the client.
