Complex Decisions Challenge

All decisions need data. Complex decisions have the power to make or break a company—they require a very special skillset to sort the facts from fiction. To make complex decisions, you need to be able to identify, transform, and visualize facts and information into valuable insights. To do this, you’ll need data—whether that’s thousands of data points or subjective responses from focus groups and individuals.

The Challenge

Live Business Consultation

Working on a current problem for a real business, you will collect, analyze, and visualize data to present findings to the company to help them with their complex issue.

Mindsets and Core Skills

We partnered with Burning Glass Technologies and analyzed millions of job postings worldwide to understand the key mindsets and core skills that are essential—not only for when you first graduate, but also for the rest of your career, right up to when you become CEO. We’ve integrated the assessment of these skills—like collaboration, communication, and creativity—into our core modules. You’ll be continually assessed on your performance to ensure you build up these attributes to the best of your ability alongside your problem-solving and leadership skills.

What our students say

We worked with a live client, tracking the journey from student to first job. It was so apt and really improved my research and presentation skills.
