The Lancaster Centre for Forecasting is seeking Master Student Projects in Forecasting, Data Mining, or Analytics for summer of 2015.
Projects normally run from mid-May to mid-August, with reports issued a few weeks after. These projects are a cost efficient way for a company to carry out analytical work by Master of Science candidates who are formally trained in forecasting. Many of the students have additional skills in areas like marketing analytics, logistics and supply chain, operations research and optimization, and simulation.
Costs are GDP 2,900 (about $4,525 USD) for a single MSc student for four months, plus travel expenses. Discounts available for additional students, non-profits, and SMEs.
Students will normally work on-site at your organization, under the joint supervision of a project leader at your company, and a forecasting expert from the Forecasting Centre. For a well structured problem, the student may remain in Lancaster with no or only occasional site visits.
