“Working with the OSU Business Analytics students was a real eye opener, not just in how well the students were engaged and preformed but also in how they identified aspects of our company we did not give them. We were very impressed with the results and will take the students recommendations seriously. This project made us excited about utilizing the program again for future projects. Great Job!”

“We were pleased to participate in a project with the students from Dr. Chakraborty’s data mining course. The students were able to take a realistic marketing challenge and come up with a wide variety of solutions using the skill sets they had been developing in the classroom. It was mutually beneficial in that we were able to glean from the excellent ideas the students had developed and apply them to our own knowledge base for similar marketing issues.”

“We were very happy to participate in the class project. The student groups analyzed CRM data along with feedback survey data and built models that predicted the likelihood of repeat purchase. The students have applied skills that they learned in the class room and came up with insights that were very helpful to the company.”

“Working with the inquisitive and enthusiastic students from Oklahoma State University on the Oklahoma State Department of Health Family Planning Data Mining Project was a delight. Students made us feel that our project was a main focus and we were provided with a wealth of information regarding our current practices. We are currently working toward implementing one student team’s predictive model into a marketing campaign. An additional student team provided the necessary information for us to move forward on changing an existing process to create a more efficient billing system. Thank you for all the hard work that obviously went into this project by the Marketing Department and the OSU students!“

“We were pleased to provide the OSU students with a hands-on modeling experience to put their learning to the test. The OSU student groups demonstrated attention to detail, inquisitiveness, initiative, sound statistical techniques and produced outcomes which will be helpful to our company. The students asked great questions along their modeling journey and presented their results well. It’s a great way for community oriented companies to support the development of future data miners and strong business analysts.”

“We got to participate in a project with students from Dr. Chakraborty’s data mining class at OSU. The students were able to quickly grasp the nuances of a difficult marketing and data challenge and were able to come up with a wide spectrum of innovative data solutions. They used the skills they have been developing the class room and were also able to come up with detailed write up and analysis for our teams to look at. This bake off concept was a great way for us to ideate on a lot of different solutions and we will be able to apply these ideas on our own data for a complete solution now”
